Series features holiday ornament

Sharon Harsh, Belington resident, will lead the Philippi Public Library’s Meet Your Local Artist Series workshop on Nov. 16. This session will feature a workshop on holiday ornaments and will run from 11 a.m. to noon at the library.

Workshop participants will learn to make the pinecone ornament, pictured above, using ribbon, beads, and silk holly leaves. Workshop leader Harsh has been making ornaments for many years from fabric, wood, and paper. Her ornaments, including the one featured at the November 16 session, are Victorian in style and range in color from bold reds and greens to pale shades of cream and peach.

The first 10 participants into the workshop will make and decorate an ornament; all others are welcome to come and watch the process and then duplicate it at home. If anyone has questions about this workshop or about any library programs, call 304-457-3495 or visit the library and talk with the staff.
