Jig saw puzzle assembly, especially of antique wood puzzles, is a uniquely satisfying social activity involving us gradually assembling hand cut wood tessarae into a complete picture, connecting us with the artist and original cutter.

An ancient technique from India will have a modern twist. While waiting to have your hand painted, you can amuse yourself with a marble rollercoaster.

2:00 – 3:30—Exquisite Corpse (Community room)
The name of a game invented by the Surrealists in which an image, typically a figure, is assembled by several people into one completed image.  Each portion is done in secret, resulting in some pretty interesting finished works. Conducted by students from the Cahill & Morse elementary schools and overseen by their art teacher, Elisa Tucci, no previous drawing experience is needed.

A discussion with local store owners & freelance business people making the most of Saugerties’ unique strengths.

Some interesting ways to reuse/repair things you have in your home. 
- Edith Bolt will be demonstrating ways to repair fabrics.
- Charlie Potter will be working with toys, he will be showing repair methods – it’s a lot about glue
- Alicia Stang will be showing you how to repurpose or repair all those pieces of jewelry you can no longer wear. Feel free to bring clothing, toys and jewelry in need of TLC.

4:30 – 5:00—Shout Out Saugerties – Everyone is an artist (Upstairs Sanctuary)
