Time in a Bottle – a Valentine Workshop, with poet Kate Rushinpoet
Saturday, February 13, 10AM
Explore your creativity to make a one-of-a-kind gift for a friend, family member, your valentine, or yourself. In this hands-on workshop, poet and teaching artist Kate Rushin guides participants as they write their own ‘message in a bottle.’ Come and be inspired by songs, poems and accounts of love messages tossed into the sea. Feel free to bring special objects ( a photo, a key, a shell, a feather, a marble) to place in the bottle along with your wishes, dreams, and declarations. Choose from bottles and materials provided to create your designs, or bring your own. Honor a loved-one. Commemorate a special occasion. Make someone laugh. Create your own unique Valentine. 10 AM to 12:30 PM. $30 general admission, $25 NLMS members and students. Call 860-447-8700 with questions. Space is limited. (But we may open a 2nd afternoon session.)
