We know that life is busy and that your time is limited. We also know that a small dose of creativity can go a long way. That's why we created the Weekend Dabbler Workshops! Each month, we will feature a workshop that will let you dip your toe in without a big commitment. And who knows? You might discover a new hobby! Future workshops may include paper making, embroidery, jewelry making, and more! Offerings will be updated seasonally. 

Weekend Dabbler Workshops are held once a month.
