November 13 – Collections + (More) Needle Felting

The way some people collect things… It’s fun to share the things that inspire us! This week, we’re bringing our collections to present and share. These do not have to be fancy, or even grouped and labelled – just bring whatever you guys collect. For example, we have jars of found glass, pinned bugs, myriad …

November 6 – Explore Time + Felting

It’s going to be excellent weather for outdoor play this week – in the 50s! Bring costumes if your kids still want to play in them, and we can still do all of the Halloween games we’re interested in. But topic-wise, I’m moving outside! Let’s try our hand at telling time using the sky and …

September 25 – Painted Leaves + Sticks

Switching to a different project this week in order to accommodate Dace’s absence – we’ll delay the window stars on her behalf. Let’s bring acrylic paints and brushes to share, along with some brushes. We can collect inspiring nature stuff and turn it into artwork with paint or sharpies. If you have cool sticks, rocks …
