Copley House Cures Winter Blues
Cabin fever? Come on over to the Copley House for a nonstop schedule of workshops
and other fun events. In addition to “Paint & Sips,” which include complimentary wine
and light bites for inspiration, we offer crafting of all kinds. There was such a strong
turnout for Rhonda Allen’s wreath making workshop in December that we plan to offer
two sessions next year. Fall also introduced interesting workshops for barn quilts, wool
snowmen, and encaustic painting, a centuries-old technique that uses wax. We hope to
move forward with all of them and are always looking for new ideas. Whether you’d like
to lead a workshop or saw something you think would be a great addition to our roster,
please share suggestions.
Parents, don’t forget about our well-received children’s dance classes by one of the
North Country’s most fantastic instructors. After renovating the dance studio, we
currently offer ballet, jazz and tap. It’s a great way to get kids out of the house and give
parents a break.
Since classes are constantly being added, stay up-to-date on our Facebook page.
Here’s a partial lineup for what’s to come in January and February. Hope to see you
here at the house.
Painting With Wool
Sunday, January 12, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
We could all use a little color in our lives this time of year. Sharon Spaker will teach how
to create vibrant landscapes, animals and other designs with needle and wet felting
techniques. Participants are invited to create a scene of their choosing, and best of all,
no experience or art training is needed for this entry-level class. Wear comfortable
clothes and shoes, and bring a bag lunch and two old towels.
Maximum – 8 students
Class and materials – $35
Additional materials for home projects may be purchased from the instructor. Register
at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Show Tunes & More
Saturday, January 25, 1 p.m.
Calling all singers ages 18 and up. Are you addicted to TV shows like “The Voice” but
have nowhere to sing outside the shower? The Copley House has just what the doctor
ordered. Join us for a brainstorming session to discover if we have enough talented
singers in the area to form a musical group or show choir. We can explore several forms
of music like a cappella numbers, soulful hymns and standards from the Great
American Songbook—the sky’s the limit. Everyone’s invited to chime in about how to
organize the group, musical direction, practice dates and times, and other key details.
We’ll start slowly with a couple meetups, so no need to worry about committing long
term. It’s all in good fun. Register with Beth Wagenaar at email@example.com.
Sounds Like Cricket—An Intro To Cricut Sunday, January 26, 1 -3 p.m.
Who doesn’t love a new gizmo, especially one that produces beautiful, unique décor?
Come learn about the clever contraption that’s won over crafters, quilters and teachers
everywhere. Keitha Dorr will get our creative juices flowing as she demonstrates this
mystifying machine’s endless possibilities. Already a pro? Please bring your favorite
personal projects to share with the class as well as any questions. Though we won’t be
making anything during this introductory class, we’ll discover what all the hype is about.
We only ask that participants make a $5 donation to the Lyme Community Foundation.

Children’s Ballet, Jazz & Tap Every Wednesday, 4:15 p.m.
Available for children ages pre-K through 6 th grade.
We are so grateful to have premier dance instructor Cindy Babel on board. As the
owner of Dance World Dance Studio, the longest operating dance studio in Watertown,
she has taught generations of students the art of dance. Kids love “Miss Cindy” for her
exclusive blend of basic ballet training with a big dose of fun. In May, our very own
Copley Dancers will perform a recital at General Brown School. Please register with her
