Senior Center News: May 28

Jewelry workshop


Jewelry Workshop will take place on Friday, June 5, from 10 to noon, at the senior center. There will only be one jewelry workshop in June. No prior experience in beading is necessary. Enjoy the fun of making your own beaded jewelry. Viola Galetta, instructor. There is a $5 fee.

Room Transformation


Kathy Engstrom, owner of A Fresh Eye, LLC, will offer a room transformation session on Friday, June 12, from 10:30 to 12:30, at the Wilton Senior Center.

The goal of the class is to show you how to achieve your desired effect with minimal additional purchases. Engstrom will use your existing furnishings and accessories to create warmth and harmony and flow.

Bring pictures of the room you will be working on — from all angles — and a floor plan (hand-drawn is fine). Engstrom will share basic design theory and then  the group will work with a few members of the class to come up with design plans for their rooms.

There is a $5 fee per session. To register, call 203-834-6240.
