Gelli Plate Play-Date For Grown-Ups. Saturday, March 4 - 10:00 a.m. to Noon
Join us the first Saturday morning of each month for some creative play using Gelli plates to make beautiful and unique prints on paper, cardstock, and fabric. These can be used in mixed media projects, on greeting cards or in scrapbooking, or to embellish other items such as photo mats. Gelli plates are playful, creative things - very little instruction is required, and this "play-date" is all about having fun while using our vast array of tools, paints, and papers.

03/16/2017:

Arm Knitting. Thursday, March 16 - 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
We are offering this workshop due to popular demand. Arm knitting is an accessible form of knitting, using nothing more than your arms and some yarn. Because it introduces the basic concepts of knitting, it is also a good preparation for knitting on needles. Because the only material required is yarn, and because there are a number of options for purchasing yarn (included a great local yarn store!), the registration fee does not cover materials. We will provide you with a list of the size and amount of yarn you need to bring to the workshop with you.

$20 (Yarn to be acquired by workshop participant.)
