Women's Art Party

Third Wednesday of the Month

6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Lind Pavilion
411 Commerce St.
Mineral Point

From March to November, women gather in the Lind Pavilion for creative camaraderie. Newcomers are always welcome. Each month a new project is planned and announced. Participants and/or local artists take turns leading Women’s Art Party projects, introducing new materials and sharing techniques. There’s no need to bring anything but yourself, as all necessary supplies will be waiting when you arrive. If you’d prefer to work on something other than the monthly project, bring your own project and work at anything you’d like. This is a friendly group. Come try it out. Make crafts. Make friends. Make crafts with friends!

Project fee: $5. Additional materials fee may apply.

The regularly scheduled September 16 Women’s Art Party sold out, but Carole Spelić has graciously agreed to offer up the same product a second time. Register now for Stuff & Stick Pumpkins Redux!

These charming bandana pumpkins are, much like pumpkin pie, simple and satisfying! Gather safely in the Lind Pavilion, 411 Commerce St., on Wednesday, Sept. 16, from 6:30-8:30 pm and learn the secret to making piles of these pumpkins to decorate your home or give as seasonal gifts. Carole Spelić will bring the pre-sewn parts to the Women’s Art Party, along with plenty of stuffing and sticks.

Project Fee: $5

Materials Fee: $7 – includes pre-sewn pumpkin parts, stuffing and sticks.

Workshop is limited to 9 participants. Masks are required.

Using women’s magazines from the 1930s through the 1970s, we will generate work reflective of collagist Wangechi Mutu, featured in Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine.
