Jenny Waterhouse, who recently led a well-attended henna tattoo workshop at the Freedom Public library, is returning to lead a beach stone painting workshop on Tuesday, May 21, at 6:30 p.m.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Come learn the fun of painting mandalas, scenery or your own personal design on beautiful, smooth beach stones from Mexico. Paint pens and bright acrylics make your designs pop. Also, if you choose, Waterhouse will show you how to bring healing intent into your stone. Once dried, these beautiful stones can then spend the summer in your garden or inside your home. Class size in limited and preregistration is required so call the library at (603) 539-5176 to sign up.
