Classes & Events / Week of 2/3/2020

Interested in becoming one of the most legendary designers of all time? Winning the Pritzker Prize (the Nobel of architecture)? Cool, no biggie, just join us for Wood Bending on Monday and learn how to get sculptural like Frank Gehry. We can’t give you the ideas, but we can bless up your technique :). 

And, don’t forget, we host Mother Goose on the Loose story time every Wednesday morning at 10:30 — for free! Bring your little one for sing alongs, stories, and time with friends.

Register here. Cost an issue? You can always apply for a scholarship.
