Events at the Historical Society of Wells and Ogunquit

Historical Society hosts a "Teeny Teacup Fairy Garden workshop in the Meetinghouse Museum!

"Teeny Teacup Fairy Gardens" is a very special program with Artsea, an innovative new company in our community for creative art-making events! The Historical Society of Wells and Ogunquit is inviting all ages on Saturday, March 18 at 10 am, to this program for families to create memories together. Fairy houses debuted in the United States in 1893 and this workshop will continue this tradition. All materials will be supplied to create fanciful tiny worlds! Artsea is an art therapy company in Southern Maine offering art therapy groups and art-making events! The owner of Artsea, Amy Welch, has been an art therapist for ten years and loves to be creative! Her artistic focus has been in photography, but as an art therapist she's fluent in all sorts of art materials and techniques. Amy describes her passion as "about curating groups where individuals experiment with new art materials or enjoy familiar ones they love!" She is thrilled to bring this workshop to the Historical Society as she considers the love of history to be a big influence on her creative practice. "As a child I read Laura Ingalls Wilder and I made the same crafts she portrayed in her book. I loved the corn husk doll, and her love of using natural objects. "This program is part of an overall increase in the offering of programs at the Historical Society, and is part of a series called Saturdays in History. It includes events like, "Sketch up at the Meetinghouse" with local artists, "History Games" for families and kids on the first Saturday of each month, and "Saturday Tours" of the Meetinghouse on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
