Let it Snow!
'Tis the season, and I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, along with most of the kids I know. Here's a way to decorate your windows with giant flakes, just in case the real thing gets foiled by El NiƱo…;-) We'll make lots of flakes, and I'm pretty sure no two will be the same! All materials provided.  Adults accompanying a registered child are free.

Do you or someone you know sometimes have bad dreams? Catch them in a beautiful handmade web which will filter them out and let only good thoughts and dreams get through.

Design Your Own Prayer Flags
In this class, we'll learn a bit about the Tibetan custom of hanging colorful flags containing mantras and prayers to promote peace and other messages, which are said to be carried on the wind and spread throughout the world. We'll design and assemble our own interpretations of these flags using stamps, paints, stencils and inks.  Just in time to hang up and spread goodwill in the New Year!
This is a fun class for parents and kids to take together.
