View announces fall workshops

Posted

OLD FORGE — View, the center of arts and culture at 3273 Route 28, will host workshops in the coming weeks on needle felting felting and stained glass. Pre-registration is required by calling 315-369-6411, or online at ViewArts.org/workshops.

• Create felted creatures at View on Saturday, Oct. 8. Fiber artist Mallory Zondag will lead arts workshops focused around creating one-of-a-kind wool creations using the technique of needle felting. Two different sessions will be available, one designed for children and one for adults.

The kids’ Mini Felted Monsters workshop runs from 10 a.m. to noon, and will allow your child to create a one-of-a-kind creation straight from their imaginations with a guided hand. The adult Felted Creatures workshop is from 1 to 4 p.m. and gives everyone the opportunity to create a special creature of their own.

These workshops will demonstrate the process and techniques used in creating a three-dimensional felted figure. Students will take home a one of a kind felted creature, as well as a brand-new appreciation for fiber arts.

Mallory will lead each workshop with step-by-step demonstrations, then have participants try creating their own creature with her guidance. Students of all ages will enjoy creating a unique and mystical felted sculpture, while also learning a new skill they can share with the rest of the family.

The Mini Felted Creatures workshop is $65, $55 for members. The adult Felted Creatures workshop is $105, $90 for members.

Mallory Zondag is a mixed media fiber artist. Zondag has exhibited in galleries, participated in artist festivals, residencies and collective shows in New York and Pennsylvania.

• Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a stained glass suncatcher? Join glass artist Mary Pokrentowski for a two-day, beginner-friendly stained-glass class on Oct. 15 and 16.

Inspired by her work to raise support for Ukraine, Pokrentowski will show students how to make their very own sunflower suncatcher.

Classes run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. All materials will be included, and students are encouraged to bring their lunch and drinks to class.

This suncatcher makes the perfect autumn decoration for any window or screened in porch. On your first day of class, you will learn how to cut glass and grind pieces to create the shape needed for your sunflower.

Once the pieces fit together, you will learn how to wrap them in copper foil and prep them for soldering.

On Sunday, you will learn how to solder with step-by-step instruction from Pokrentowski. You will assemble your sunflower suncatcher and will be able to take them home.

Costs is $130, $120 for members.
