Making is any activity that uses creative skills to make or design something on your own. The DIY movement is inspiring everything from artisanal food to crafted accessories, to handmade home décor. In our series of monthly workshops we celebrate the creative impulse with events that enable you to learn a new skill and take home a piece of wearable or decorative art that you’ve created!

Workshops are held in the Kevin D. Marlo Little Theatre and lunch is provided.
