Craft Gym
Put aside your to-do lists and spending some time… simply crafting. Rediscover the joys of pipe cleaners, découpage a tiny treasure box, experiment with washi tape, or string together a cheery little banner. A new craft activity will be presented every week for anyone looking for inspiration. Or if you prefer, bring something you've been working on and craft in good company. Get help, share your ideas and finally have all of those burning crafting questions answered (What IS quilling anyway?). Adults, teenagers and children ages 10+ accompanied by a parent or caregiver are welcome.
