This will be held with the intent for participants to have homework and after the first evening, start to put their ideas on paper and bring to the second session. Registration fee includes all materials and supplies! The “Hands-On” workshop will be held on Tuesday, November 7th and on Tuesday, November 14th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm both evenings.
