Ancient Cultures and the Stars (for adults!)
Denver Museum of Nature & Science
Thursday, August 4, 1pm

In a world without artificial lights, the night sky was ablaze with over a thousand stars, whose patterns illustrated stories people had heard since childhood. It’s movements were crucial to daily life; it served as timekeeper, calendar and compass. The order of the cosmos was often reflected in buildings and cities that were aligned to its movements. Join us as we explore the science and wonder of the night sky as viewed by ancient cultures from around the world.

Scarf and Felting workshop
with Karin Neidfeldt
Saturday, October 20, 10am-4pm

Join Karin Niedfeldt for her needle felting and scarf making workshops. Learn both needle and wet felting techniques. Sign up for one or both!     website
Felting Workshop, 10am-1pm 
Needle felting is a process that uses sharp, barbed needles to take loose wool fibers and turn them into wool sculptures. In this class we will make a bird or whatever your muse wants to make. This is an introduction to needle felting techniques. Because the needles are very sharp, only children over the age of 10 are allowed. If you have some experience, please come and Karin will help you with more advanced techniques also.
Scarf Workshop, 2pm-6pm 
Wet Felting: Cobweb Silk/Merino Wool Scarf
Using the softest merino wool that has been blended with silk fibers, participants will learn the basics of wet felting to make a very soft, lightweight scarf. The process of wet felting uses an olive oil soap gel, water and rolling in bubble wrap to make items. For Scarf Workshop, email arts@georgetowntrust.org with your color preferences (greens, blues, reds, browns, etc).
$25 Felting Workshop only | $35 Scarf Workshop only | $50 Felting & Scarf Workshop
