During the Golden Afternoons program at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, Suzan Richar of Wellsboro will show people attending how to do two different craft projects to take home. All materials will be provided free. Each person attending is asked to bring a pair of scissors to cut paper.
This free program is open to anyone 55 years of age or older. It will be in the lobby at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. There will be free refreshments.
For the first project, Richar will show participants how to make a pinecone ornament using paper and straight pins.
“For those that want to do something different with paper, I will show them how to create a Christmas candle design on a notecard using the iris folding technique,” Richar said.
A member of the Wellsboro Art Club since the late 1970s, Richar served as president for seven years, 2012 through 2018.
“I’ve always been interested in arts and crafts,” she said. “My favorite medium is watercolor Batik on rice paper.” Richar is also known for the photographs she takes of flowers, landscapes and structures, such as the gazebo in winter at John. J. Collins Memorial Park on Berger Lake in Galeton, and for making glittery putz houses from cardboard.
