Friday Aug 31: Soapstone Carving Day!

We had a wildly successful Soapstone Carving intro workshop with local carver Michelle Sylliboy.  So many people turned out on this sunny Friday afternoon at Oppenheimer Park!

Thank you so much to all who came out.  We had so much fun and learned a lot from our wonderful facilitator Michelle. 
Hope to do it again soon!!

Have a great weekend.

Don't forget SWARM next Friday night! Come see us down in the art room.  We'll have goodies and art to look at!!
