Rose Beads Workshop 7-11-15

Update 10pm 7/1115 – Thanks to everyone who came to the workshops today! We had a great time. Thanks also to Lady Vilda who is a *great* teacher! She’s offering to come out to do this again sometime, so drop me a line if you are interested.

————————————

We are hosting a special workshop this Saturday and bringing an expert down from Washington. Here is your chance to learn this fun (and not difficult) period craft! (…and you have an excuse for a day at the Coast….)

Rose Beads – Saturday, July 11th at 11am and 2pm!

rose-beadsBeads made from the petals of the rose have been a popular home craft since the Victorian era, and possibly Medieval times, though information is sparse for the latter. Delicate, and delicately scented, they make a wonderful addition to the

Roses to dry

Roses to dry

historically-based ensemble. This workshop provides instructions for the entire process, as well as the hands-on creation of one’s own starter set of beads. Be aware, this is a messy undertaking, and we do use essential oils. There is a $5 fee per person for materials. (If you choose to do both workshops, please see Anja for a fee reduction!)
Kate McClure, sometimes known as Lady Vilda, has been working with rose bead paste for a number of years. She has also been known to work with fabric, write a bit, and commune with Nature on a regular basis. Owned by four cats, she somehow finds the time to occasionally wander western Washington, in search of adventure.

This will be held at Ancient Light, 145 NE Highway 101 (Pacific Coast Highway) 541-563-7154

To get there, take your best route to Highway 101 from North, South or East (route 34) From the North, you will cross the Alsea Bay Bridge, from the South, simply roll into the business district along the Highway, from the East you’re looking for the stoplight. (Yes, Waldport has just one.)   We are located in the block just south of the stoplight on the east side of the street. You will turn east on Willow Street and immediately left into our parking lot. You can park in front of the hair salon south of us, as they are closed on Saturdays or go on around to the east side of the block where there are a lot of parking spaces. Please don’t take up the few spaces that belong to the businesses north of us!

Upcoming Activities for House Capuchin 6-30-15

House Capuchin Shield2This is an interesting week what with the 4th July holiday in a tourist town and AnTir/West War going on down the coast in Gold Beach!

There’s no Sewing on Thursday, officially, although I’ll be sewing at the shop from about 3 until closing (7pm) and if anyone comes in we can work on whatever, although I could use a hand stuffing and stitching up balls. Project Day on Sunday is going to be doing a bit of a re-set of what projects we have going and what needs to be finished before Coronation, ‘coz that’s also the stuff that’s needed for Pennsic. Be prepared to be handed projects! 🙂
