Rock Felting Workshop

Let’s Rock!

RockChildren aged eight and up are invited to “Felt with Rocks” with Alice Pedersen in a free two-part hands-on workshop at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Yarmouth!

Alice Pedersen enjoys finding unique ways to turn objects found in nature into works of art.  She spends a good portion of free-time “beach combing”.  Rocks and stones are plentiful and finding a distinctive way to cover them intrigued her. Felting rocks and embellishing them evolved from doing what she enjoys most: unstructured, unplanned art.

The Let’s Rock workshops will be held at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Yarmouth on Sunday, November 17th and Sunday November 24th, beginning at 2:00 p.m.

The Let’s Rock workshops are offered through the Art Gallery’s ArtReach program, supported by the Gallery and the NS Department of Education.

To register and for more information, call the Art Gallery at 749-2248.
