Handmade Holiday: Mixed-Media Ornament Workshop

In this workshop, instructor Jennifer Wilkin Penick will guide you in making charming paper “ornaments” using materials that you probably already have at home. With little more than markers or watercolor and some heavy paper, you will make several lovely paper ornaments. They make perfect gift tags, can be included in holiday greeting cards, or used as actual ornaments. This class is for all skill levels.


Monday, December 7, 5:30-7:00pm
