“First Ladies of Resilience” with Jacqueline Berger
Old Sturbridge Village – One could state correctly that America’s First Ladies are iconic examples of resilience, courage and emotional agility. This has all been in the spotlight of media attention (even back in the day), against the backdrop of history in the making and largely behind the scenes. There is no greater test of one’s imagined reservoir of resilience than the unpredictability of the moment. An engaging and inspiring speaker, Jacqueline Berger invites us into the lives and times of these women with an insider’s familiarity, earning her a national reputation as “The First Ladies Lady.”

Fiber of Our Being Reception
Worcester Center for Crafts – Join the Northeast Feltmakers Guild at a stunning exhibition of works created through the feltmaking process. "As felters, we work the wool with every fiber of our being. There is a direct connection from our fingertips to our medium with no separation as with a paintbrush or a stick of charcoal. Does our process begin with the wool or from someplace within ourselves? Is it a physical manifestation of our thought process or the physical force used to harden and strengthen wool into a firm structure?" An Artist Talk by Joy Muller-McCoola at 6PM will explore those questions. Free. The exhibit is up through November 18. A closing reception is also planned for November 11, 3:00-4:30pm. Felted Sculptural Vessel Basics- Classic, Complex, Organic A workshop with Carol Ingram November 4: 10AM-5PM Cost: $140 (additional $25 materials fee paid separately to instructor in class) A several ways depending on the desired result. Discover the transformative qualities of felt to create a pleasing vessel while experimenting with surface texture, design and sculptural techniques. All levels welcome!

Paint your Pet: Multi-Pet Household edition
Worcester Animal Rescue League – If you’ve got more than one animal in your home or in your heart, this is the class for you. And it’s a fun way to benefit the Worcester Animal Rescue League. We’ll be painting multiple pets in a simple, easy style on an 8x10 canvas, following a step-by-step process built on a foundation of basic geometric shapes. Slightly different than our “Paint Your Pet” classes, this time we’ll be representing your finned, furry or feathered friends in a style that’s more like a cartoon. It will be easy and fun! No experience required and all supplies, as usual, will be provided. Just wear something sloppy to paint in and bring your sense of humor. IMPORTANT/PLEASE READ: Clicking the “Going” button on the Facebook event is a great way to drum up excitement, but it will not reserve your spot. **All questions and registrations must be done by email.** The cost is $35 (exact change / cash is strongly preferred for speedy check-in, paid the night of the event) and each class can accommodate only 10 people, so sign up ASAP at jennilesart@gmail.com with the word “Multi Pet” in the subject line. To help Jen help you, send a “head shot” of your pet no later than Friday, September 15.
