Scroll Saw Christmas Ornaments

Adirondack Folk School 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne

There's nothing like the beauty of the winter season in the Adirondacks! Make a holiday ornament for yourself or your loved ones. Over the course of this day students will progress from making a simple wooden Christmas ornament to one requiring the skills you will have achieved during the day. The course will include instruction on the safe use of the power scroll saw, pattern transfer, the cutting of multiple ornaments using the stacking process and the process of making interior cuts in a piece of wood using a scroll saw. Appropriate for beginning woodworkers and those with some experience.

Holiday Soap Making

Come and make soap for holiday gift giving! You will design and create a holiday soap scented with your favorite pines, peppermints and more. You can design your soap to look like cupcakes or other holiday treats! On the second day of class, you will cut the soap with a professional cutter, and design labels and will receive helpful hints for packaging. The timing of this class takes into account that soap must cure for 4 weeks prior to using.

Rugs from Rags

No weaving experience is necessary! The looms are dressed and ready to go, all you need to do is bring your creative spirit and to leave with a finished one-of-a-kind rug. Students will have a choice of making a traditional Rag Rug using recycled fabric strips or making a Sock Rug using remnants from a sock factory. Colors and choices of fabric and remnants vary from class to class depending on availability. The rugs are 24" wide, and up to 45" long.
