Cut a rug in our hand-woven rag rug class. Learn a simple technique that has been used for generations to repurpose your textiles into a floor adornment so comfortable you will not want to step off!  Create your rug in a square, rectangle, circle or semi-circle shape.  Students provide 20 or more used adult garments, towels or blankets and a pair of sharp fabric scissors. Its’s a good motivation to clean out your closets!

Fee $20 for members, $25 for non-members.

Julie Bell – Scattering Kindness
Saturday, March 24
11 am – 4 pmLet’s WELCOME SPRING by making new beaded bracelets for our spring wardrobe! There will be lots of beads for YOU to design what YOU want! This will be a “drop in” class, so you can come by when YOU want. This is an awesome event for part of a “girls day out!” You can do a little beading with us, and then lunch and shopping local in downtown Monroe! You deserve it!

Essential oils will be available for you to add to lava bracelets if you would like.

Price: 10.00 for the first bracelet (which includes my mini lesson). If you want to make more than one, the rest are just 8.00 each.  Just drop in!

So many good things happening here at MWCA every week!  Customized artful birthday parties, fun classes – including pottery, special needs art classes and even a sculpture/hypertufa class!

Each month we offer over 50 classes and creative workshops for kids and adults.  I’m sure you’ll find a great way to express your creative energy!

Our Yard Art projects are coming along.  We’ve already gotten lots of dishes donated and our Thursday Let’s Create group got started last week making some beautiful works for the April 28 Farm to Table Dinner.  Join us!  We have a $5 off coupon for you to use at FISH to buy some dishes and glassware for these fun “found art” Yard Art works.  Proceeds will benefit us of course, but also FISH and the Farmers Market.  Win – win – win!


Just a sampling of some of the new works in our Artists Market … Come see all the gorgeousness!
