Craft & Chat - June 6th

Join us for monthly casual Craft & Chat! On the first Tuesday of each month, we will host two time slots for an adult craft. A daytime slot will take place at 11:00am and an evening at 5:30pm. Participants are encouraged to bring their current W.I.P.s (work in-progress) to show off and/or get feedback on. This month we will be doing an activity we're calling Paint & Pot. We will have plants available to pot and take home in the planter you paint yourself!
