[March 10, 2017]
- Saturday March 18th will be the second “Art & Craft Day in
Elkhart”, and will be hosted by Horsefeathers, Birdsong Books and
Vintage, and the Country Bumpkin.
Each shop will have its own craft, and each session will be
offered two times, 10 a.m. and noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. with an
hour break for lunch at the Wild Hare Café at noon. Also
participating will be the Elkhart Public Library and the Rt. 66 Slot
Car Raceway, each of which will have family based activities,
allowing everyone in the family to have an activity.
Horsefeathers will again offer watercolor painting in the morning
and acrylic painting in the afternoon, with two new subjects taught
by well-known artist Reneé Sisk. Jean Tweet will offer fabric
collage instructions at Birdsong using vintage material, buttons and
lace. You are welcome to bring special items that you would like to
incorporate in your special work. Jamie Theobald will offer
beginning crochet at the Country Bumpkin. All projects are designed
to be completed in the 2 hour time period, allowing you to do two
different classes if desired.
There will be a cost per each two-hour session that includes all
materials. Of the fee charged, $5 will be donated directly to the
Elkhart Historical Society to use to defray costs while helping to
offer events for the education and enjoyment of the community.
