Open Crafting Hour @ Recirculation


Calling all crafters (and aspiring crafters alike). Has that half finished art project been staring you down all summer? Do you have a new project you’ve been dying to try? Join us this Saturday August 6th at Recirculation for an Open Crafting Hour. Open to all ages and skill levels. Some art materials will be provided by our Community Arts Cabinet, but feel free to bring some of your own too!  We are also accepting donations for the Cabinet, which provides free art supplies for and by our community. See you all there from 1-3PM .
