Get Crafty About Kicking the Winter Blues

Make your creativity a survival skill


Ah, March. There’s no way around the fact that this is pretty much the worst month. The combination of the winter thaw plus raw, blustery wind and the inevitable snow relapse just when we’re starting to believe that the blizzards are over for the season... Not fun. But you know what is fun? Crafting. Lucky for you, Tiverton’s Four Corners Arts Center is offering a new spring schedule, full of classes taught by talented locals that will get you out of the house and in a better state of mind.

Starting this month, choose from options like Primitive Rug Hooking for Beginners by Hayley and Sharron Perry of Loop by Loop Studio, Intro to Wire Working by jewelry designer Tiffany Peay, Altered Book Art Journaling Techniques for Beginners by Rhiannon Smith, Intro to Lifestyle Photography by Alyssa Wood of Isa Images and a Sculptural Wire and Paper Flower workshop by Sue Freda. If this is the year you’re vowing to start a garden from seed, check out Intro to Heirloom Seed Starting by Kristin Silveira of Sakonnet Farm. And if, after all that learning, you still can’t cure the winter blues? Well, there’s always wine.
