Laser Cut Snowmen
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

As you may have been able to guess, we will not be laser cutting an actual snowman, due to the whole melting thing. Instead, we will be constructing one using parts cut out on our laser cutter, and then decorating them using paints and other decorations. These snowmen can be used year after year, because they will never melt! Basic computer skills required.

All materials provided. Open to adults and teens in grades 9 and above. This program is also being held on Thursday, November 29 at 3:00. You may only register for one session.

Wear Nature's Colors: An Introduction to Natural Dyes
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

This workshop will introduce the ancient craft of using plant material--from common garden plants to exotic materials and techniques--to dye textiles. Participants will tie-dye a silk scarf to take home while learning how to add color to their clothing and surroundings with ease, low cost, safety and environmental sensitivity. 

Instructor Jude Hsiang has been exploring the use of plants to add color to her knitting and weaving projects for four decades. A UConn Extension Advanced Master Gardener, she is an instructor and county coordinator for the program. She also works at Broken Arrow Nursery and is a member of the boards of the Experiment Station Associate and Connecticut Botanical Society.

All materials provided. Open to adults and teens in grades 9 and above.
