Popular EAC instructor Ann Cannizzaro will lead a festive needle felting workshop from 1-4 pm, Sunday, November 21, at Eastport Arts Center. Attendees will get ready for the holiday season with several individual projects which can be combined in a seasonal centerpiece or display. Alternately, pieces can stand alone as ornaments or little treasures to gift to someone special. “We will be making colorful acorn ornaments, jingle bell stars, miniature holiday trees, and finally a guardian gnome to watch over those you love,” notes Cannizzaro. “After this hands-on experience, you will leave with supplies to continue learning on your own.”

Cannizzaro is an educator, artist, and lifelong learner living in Downeast Maine. Her EAC teaching credits include many sessions of Summer Arts Camp, each with its own media/theme, and many ornament-making workshops.

The workshop has been designed for participants ages 12 and up. A $20 registration fee covers all materials; to register, please email Alison Brennan at alison@eastportartscenter.org. Space is limited, so please register early to save your space. A sliding fee scale is available by request. At this time, patrons are required to wear masks inside the EAC building.
Support for the workshop has been provided by Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
