2023 HAS Dues are due by March 1, 2023

February 8, 2023 HAS General Meeting 7-8 pm

The Lawrence Barn       28 Depot Rd           Hollis NH

Let’s play with some Gold Leaf!

Cheryl O’Donnell of COD Decorative Painting will show us options for using Gold Leaf,
a brief history of the shimmery stuff, we’ll talk about Kintsugi (Golden Joinery),
and if you feel inspired by all the refracting light, you can gold leaf something yourself.
Bring a small item to highlight with gold leaf and your own latex artist brush-keep both small.
Cheryl will have a jar of seashells to use if you can’t decide what to bring.
Let’s get together to shine!
