Community input, share your (arts) vision for Claremont!

The City of Claremont Master Plan Committee is hard at work revising the current master plan for the City. While the master plan covers a huge variety of topics in the life of the City, many don’t realize that there’s actually already a section on the arts in the community that will also be revised. Please take a few moments to share your vision for Claremont in this official survey (it is open to residents as well as people who spend substantial time in Claremont, like those who work here). Depending on how much information you’d like to share it should take on average about 10-15 minutes, and data is kept anonymous. Here is the link:

WCCMA’s Executive Director Melissa Richmond is a member of this committee, and is looking forward to helping incorporate your general and arts ideas into this plan! Thank you for taking the time to participate.

Drawing Club rescheduled for Sunday!

We’ve had a slight schedule change for this weekend’s events, please note the date and/or time changes:

Felt Toy makingDrawing Club: Design your own character
Saturday, April 24 at 12 PM
Union Church hall (upstairs), 133 Old Church Rd, Claremont, NH

Create a character (maybe drawing one that we already know and love) that you’d like to create as a stuffed toy. This drawn character will become a pattern we can create on May 1 at a wonderful new class offered by WCCMA – Felt Toy Making! More info here.

Fiber and Craft Monthly Meetup
4th Sundays of the month: next meeting April 24th (free)
12PM, at Union Church hall (upstairs), 133 Old Church Rd, Claremont, NH

Bring your projects and join us for conversation and project/technique sharing. This is a monthly gathering for community fiber arts and crafting. Any project type is welcome, and beginners are welcome to join to connect with more advanced craftspeople for tips and tricks. Bring your own supplies, bag lunches welcome.

Participants are welcome to come at the regular 11pm time downstairs, but there will be a group gathering in that space at 11:30 from Union-St Luke’s Parish for a meeting about the rector search. At that time we can migrate to the upstairs where the Drawing Club will be meeting to create characters at 12pm, or you can continue to coexist in that space.
