This autumn, The Women’s Health Resource Library again offering our popular Paint and Sip series. In addition, we are now offering workshops in Linoleum Block Printing/Stamp Making and Needle Felting Animal Ornaments.
Paint and Sip
Artists Ora Aselton, Krissy Tatengelo, and Alahna Roach will be your guides as you explore your inner artist with Paint and Sip. Each evening will feature a subject, but you will not leave with the same painting. You will develop your own interpretation of the subject matter to create your own individual painting. You will learn about painting techniques, color, composition and creativity!
You’ll receive an 11 x 14” canvas. Paints and brushes, light snacks and soft drinks will be provided. Bring your creativity and a smock!

Each student will leave with a finished printed tote bag and their own block carving tools and brayer. All materials, tools, and inks provided.

This two-evening class runs from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at the Women’s Health Resource Library. The cost is $50 and you’ll keep the carving tools so you can continue to create on your own.
Needle Felting Animal Ornaments
Join Gail Morehouse and learn how to needle felt small animal ornaments. Needle felting involves using a very sharp barbed needle to interlock wool fibers into various shapes. It’s a fun, easy and forgiving craft. We will cover the basics and end up with a couple of cute animals to hang on your tree or give as gifts. For ages 12 and up.
- Wednesday, December 7 from 5:30-8:30pm.
The cost is $35 and you’ll go not only with your ornaments, but also with the felting needle and foam block set so you can continue to create on your own.
All workshops are at the Women’s Health Resource Library at 24 School Street in Milbridge. Space is limited. Advance registration and payment is required. Visit www.whrl.org/programs/art/ for more details!
