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

Jerry Barlow concert

with The Pelican Divas

Presented by Friends of the Georgetown Library

Friday, October 26, 7pm

Two favorites return to Georgetown! Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow is a virtuoso musician, a warm and accessible performer, and a world-class storyteller.  His repertoire is composed of a synthesis of traditional music from the British Isles and his own original Celtic-inspired compositions. Barlow brings the songs alive by sharing the history, legend and humor behind the music. His expressive arrangements have been described as “music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.”

His music has been heard on National Public Radio and PBS, has won the Indie Project Award, has been used in films, and was nominated for Instrumental Album of the Year (2011) by the Independent Music Association.

   The Pelican Divas, a popular local singing group, blend their beautiful harmonies with Irish and folk music. They have opened for Jerry Barlow in past years. We are pleased to welcome them to the Heritage Center stage.
