Artists lead Halloween workshop

Friday, October 14, 2011

WEST TERRE HAUTE -- Three fabric artists will lead a Halloween-themed creative workshop Saturday, Oct. 29, at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice (WVC) at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

The workshop will be from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., at the WVC education center.

Martha Crossen will be the instructor for a knitted Harry Potter costume project. Participants will have a kit to create Hogwart Mascot House Bat and a Hogwart Wizard Mascot with pumpkin.

Knitters will be to finish one project and perhaps both during the workshop.

All supplies will be provided except needles. Participants should bring size US2DPNs, US3 straight and US4 straight needles, along with regular knitting tools such as scissors, tapestry needles and more if needed. Paula Scott Frantz will lead a water felting mask-making class.

Participants will make a mask out of flat felt cut into the shape of a mask made from different wools. The finished work will be similar to a Harlequin mask. The masks can be embellished with feathers, felted pieces and other creative accents.

John Salamone will lead "Weave a Bewitching Night Sky!"

All magical folk have worn the mantle of the night sky for centuries. In his workshop, participants will weave a Chenille scarf using dark blues and black Rayon Chenille along with some enchanting accent yarns to represent sparkling stars.

A limited number of looms are available.

Participants may bring a four-harness loom with 12 or 15 dent reed.

Cost of the workshop is $60, plus the cost of materials mentioned above.

The registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 21.

For more information or to register, call Robyn Morton, WVC associate director, at rmorton@spsmw.org, or call 812-535-2932.
