    Join Kirith Bains in making sustainable decorations that will last you years and not fill up the landfills! Create unique individual ornaments out of metal, re-used single use plastics and fabric, all while having fun! Metals are 100% recyclable while plastics are not which is why it's important to cut down on single use plastics or find a way to continue using them. Most fabric is recyclable but more often than not it ends up in landfills. 

    Instead of buying decorations make them with your friends and family. This is family friendly workshop that will be informative and entertaining. 

    All supplies provided, $5 supply fee is included in the participation fee.

    Workshop will be in person. Workshop participants will be required to wear a mask & produce proof of vaccination.

    Please be aware that Youth tickets must be purchased separately from Member and Non-Member tickets. When you choose to add guests onto a Member or Non-Member ticket they will pay the same price that you pay.
