Rock Your Halloween – Family Event-Open House

October 26th, 2013

1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Scary is good on the spookiest day of the year, but scary and crafty is even better. So, on Saturday, Oct. 26, the WHS will offer a workshop where everybody will learn how make Halloween pumpkins from rocks and masks with cool recycled material. As if that’s not cool enough, we will make mini ghosts galore and a bevy of creative Halloween decorations you will keep for years.

You may wonder how stones can be turned into pumpkins. This Cinderella trick starts with orange-colored rocks collected from area beaches. They take the guise of Halloween pumpkins when they’re decorated with pieces of colored felt.

And since everyone is bound to work up an appetite making all this ghoulish stuff, a snack of spicy cider and pumpkin muffins will be served.

Capping off the program will be a tour of the WHS’ museum rooms, where ghosts and other frightful things await. The Halloween-inspired creativity takes place under the guidance of artist Elizabeth De Voll, the WHS’ education director.

The workshop runs from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The cost is $25 per member family, $35 per non-member family, $10 per member, and $15 per non-member.
