Upcoming Craft Night Wednesday October 8, 2014 at 7:00 pm – Spooky Craft Party!
There is perhaps no night in the year which the popular imagination has stamped with a more peculiar character than the evening of the 31st of October, known as All Hallow’s Eve, or Halloween. It is clearly a relic of pagan times, for there is nothing in the church-observance of the ensuing day of All Saints to have originated such extraordinary notions as are connected with this celebrated festival, or such remarkable practices as those by which it is distinguished. ~The Book of Days, 1872
We’ll be enjoying fall treats, playing 19th century fortune telling games and maybe even telling a few ghost stories at our annual Spooky Craft Party! We’ll also have a fun fall themed craft: skeletonizing leaves. This is an interesting process that removes all of the pulp from a leaf leaving behind the lacey vein structure. Victorians called floral displays made with skeletonized leaves ‘phantom bouquets’.
