Continuing the Crafting Connection!

The Crafting Connection has moved to a monthly in-person program!  Join us each month to learn something new!  Note: This is an adult program as we will be working with tools that may be unsafe for children to handle.

Here are our first 2 classes:

Sea Glass Framed Art: Monday, August 1st [Moved from July 25th due to thunderstorms]

Do you have a bottle of sea glass on your shelf? Bring your treasures to create a sea glass framed picture. If you do not have sea glass, materials will be provided. Space is limited to 24.  Register here.

Mandala Sea Star: Monday, August 22

A mandala is a complex abstract design, usually circular with a center point, from which symbols, shapes and forms emanate.  We’ll use canvases, acrylic paint, and mandala dotting tools to create a sea star shape. Space is limited to 24.   Register here.

2nd Wednesdays at 6:30 PM

We are back and cooking!! In this unique book club we discuss our favorite recipes and what we bring to the meeting. If you need inspiration for a dish we have books to help!
