Quarry Hill Farm Art Gatherings
For the week of August 25th-29th, we are hosting an impromptu end of summer arts and crafts gatherings here at Quarry Hill Farm. Cassie Pelletier, former homeschooler now college student will be leading informal classes on various arts and crafts. There will also be time for storytelling, nature walks on our beautiful rural property, free play, swimming (more like dipping) in our small above ground pool and visiting our wide variety of barn animals. I am simply hosting the gathering, Cassie is in charge, and all money paid goes directly to her to help her pay for college. If we get a lot of children, Cassie will get another college student to help teach and supervise. I will request all parents to sign a liability waiver.
Ages: 6-12 (some older 5’s who can focus on crafts considered, as well as older children who still “fit in” with and enjoy the younger children). This is a drop-off program.
When: 9:30-1:00, August 25-29, you may choose individual days or come the entire week
What to Bring: children must bring their own bagged lunch, towel and swimming suit, change of clothes, and smocks to protect clothing during crafting
Cost: $20.00 per individual day/1 child, $75.00 for the entire week/1 child
$25.00 total per individual day/2 or more siblings, $100.00/ week/2 or more siblings
$15.00 per child for the week materials fee, or $3.00 per individual day
-Cassie will consider a discount or scholarship for one or two financially strapped families in exchange for helping to wrangle and manage children during craft activities.
Schedule of activities:
Monday 25th: BOOKMAKING- cassie will lead the children through simple bookbinding, using a variety of techniques. They will decorate their books with natural found items, paper and fabric.
Tuesday 26th: MINIATURES IN POLYMER CLAY-Cassie will help the children make their own miniatures out of polymer clay! They can make tiny items for their dolls and dollhouses, create small animals or dioramas that can go and live in their fairy houses they will build on Thursday.
Wednesday 27th: DREAMCATCHERS AND POLYMER CLAY FINISHING-polymer clay projects from the day before can be finished if needed and the children will make dream catchers! No description necessary!
Thursday 28th: FAIRY HOUSES-Cassie will take the children on an adventure in our “fairy woods” to build natural fairy houses for the fairies, and also using some man made materials, will help them make fairy houses to take home for their polymer miniatures.
Friday 29th: Tie Dye-Bring a few items you would like to dye, and we will make a mess doing it I am sure! Besides doing traditional tie dye, the children can try their hands at making imprints with leaves and flowers.
