Create Date – Unlikely Friends
Sunday, March 1 from noon – 3 pm
“A friend is someone who helps you up when you are down, and if they can’t, they lay down beside you and listen.” – Winnie the Pooh

Friends come in all shapes and sizes. It is said the best way to make a friend is to be one. Participants will create playful images with water color, colored pencil, and ink that show unlikely or unusual friends sharing a moment of kindness. Maybe one of your friends will be furry and the other one will have scales! Think about unusual friendships that show us all the power of kindness and therefore friendship.

Create Date – Repurposing
Sunday, April 5 from noon – 3 pm
To repurpose something is to use it in a way that is different from the original intended use. Repurposing an item can be done by adapting it to fit a new use, or by using the item as is in a new way. Participants of this Create Date will repurpose drapery tassels. With some imagination and other recycled items, these tassels will transform into beautiful works of art. This program is limited to 42 participants.
