Special event, do not index

Learn to make a painted floor cloth.  Painted floor cloths were used prior to linoleum flooring.  They brightened homes early in the history of this country. 
 
Large floor cloths were made from the canvas used for sails.  A painted floor cloth is sturdy and long wearing if placed on a firm flat surface and kept properly sealed, and can be swept with a broom and cleaned with water.
You’ll start with a 24”x36” piece of canvas which is ready for your design.  Your designed can be painted or stenciled.  Faux painting techniques will also be introduced.  No painting experience is required. 
 
There will be stencils and stencil brushes and an assortment of acrylic paints and brushes for use in the workshop.   Bring your own stencils, acrylic paints, brushes, T-squares and yard sticks if you wish. (Put your name on your supplies and equipment). You’ll learn how to prepare the canvas for painting and how to seal your project at home after the paints have had time to cure.  Be prepared to take you floor cloth home flat.  If you have it, bring a hair dryer.  Wear your old painting clothes.  The leader will bring all other tools and supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

Note:  The supply fee must be received 2 weeks in advance to allow time to prepare the canvas.
Leader provides prepared canvas, blue painter’s tape, stencils, stencil brushes, other brushes, acrylic paints, corrugated cardboard to tape floor cloth home flat.

This event is two 3-hour classes and you  must attend the first to continue to the second class.

Local author, Scott Phillips, will be at the Madison Library on Thursday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss his new book, Remove Before Flight. As a ten-year-old boy inspired by fellow Ohioan, Neil Armstrong, when he landed on the moon in 1969, Scott dreamed of someday becoming part of something larger than himself. Ten years later, through a series of serendipitous life events, Scott Phillips embarked on a career with NASA's groundbreaking Space Shuttle Program. He was the last team member to exit the first External Tank prior to its maiden flight on April 12, 1981, and saved the Remove Before Flight ribbon as a memento. What followed was an extraordinary 33-year adventure, encompassing the entire span of the program -- from the depths of tragedy to the exclusive never-before-seen photos and first-hand stories. Remove Before Flight takes the reader on a historical and personal journey that will enlighten and entertain. Read more about Local Author, Scott Phillips, to Visit Madison Library
