Macramé Madness

Saturday, May 4th 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Learn this retro craft and join in on the macramé craze!  We will be making a mini macramé plant holder.  All supplies will be provided, including a small plant.  This is a buddy program: parents and grandparents, older siblings, and caregivers work paired to help younger learners (ages 8 and up) complete the craft.  Please note that space is limited for this program and registration is required.  Makes a great Mother’s Day Gift!  Hurray Macra-May!

Beginner Harmonica Class

The lesson includes a FREE Hohner Special 20 harmonica to take home and master!  Please note that space is limited for this program and registration is required.  Must be in grades 4 – 12 to participate.
