PETERSHAM — The Petersham Art Center has released its schedule of spring art classes to be held at the Art Center, 8 North Street, just off Route 32.

On Saturday, Feb. 16, from noon to 3 p.m., Karen Healey, of the Dappled Ewe, will teach a class on how to make a hooked wool flower pin. Healey has been creating hand-dyed wools, hand hooked rugs, and teaching about the fiber arts for many years.  Students should bring a hook and a 10-inch hoop, or they can arrange to borrow materials from the teacher. They will take home a 3 ½-inch flower pin.

Bill Manser will teach a six week course on fly tying, on Wednesdays, 6-8 p.m., on March 27, April 3, 10, 17, 24, and May 1. Manser has been an avid fly fisherman and flytier for more than 28 years. He is a member of the Millers River Chapter of Trout Unlimited and has taught courses for the Veterans Partnership on the art of fly fishing. He can accommodate beginners and experienced fisherman alike as they learn how to make classic ties that work best for northeast trout, as well as alternate styles of the students’ own choosing.

A drawing class taught by well-known nature artist, Gordon Morrison, is already full. If anyone would like to be put on the waiting list, they may call for more information.

People may call the Petersham Art Center at 978-724-3415 for more information and to register for classes. There is a fee for each class. The Petersham Art Center is a non-profit venue for art and craft of the North Quabbin region. PAC hosts educational classes and programs, exhibits of local artists, and maintains a gift shop of exquisite handmade items created by area artists and crafters. The shop and exhibits are open on weekends, noon to 4 p.m, starting Feb.1 and will be open with expanded hours later in the season.
