Sugar Rose Workshop, Art Display Planned at Runnymede for March First Friday

Updated: Mar 5

Offering various workshops open to the public is a new venture being established by members of the Nescatunga Arts and Humanities Council.

The first workshop planned will be a First Friday Artwalk event on Friday, March 1, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Runnymede where participants will learn to create sugar roses using fondant. The workshop is $25 and is limited to 10 people.

April Ridgway, Nescatunga Arts Festival Sugar Show coordinator, will be leading the workshop. She may be contacted at (580) 748-4880 or

Participants will not need to furnish any items for this make-and-take event.

Also, as part of the First Friday events that evening on the main level of the Runnymede, artwork will be displayed by members of Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s visual arts program. David Poindexter, associate professor of visual arts, and Thomas Cornell, assistant professor of visual arts, will join their students to display their work. The art display will be open from 6-8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Members of the Council continue to discuss ways of growing its membership through its First Friday events or raising funds by offering fun artistic workshops at the Runnymede. As the members continue to meet to make plans for the annual Nescatunga Arts Festival, discussion will continue on adding other workshops to the calendar. Anyone with suggestions on workshops may contact council members at

Anyone interested in being a member of the Nescatunga Arts and Humanities Council is welcome to attend meetings and pay annual membership dues of $25. Checks for dues can be mailed to P.O. Box 152, Alva, OK 73717, or paid online via PayPal at

Donations to Nescatunga are welcomed to help defray costs for the festival and other activities of the Council.
