Workshops include Origami in beginning and intermediate levels- Beginning, Spring, Practical, Modular, Fall and Holiday, Bookbinding, Fairy Houses, Nature Journals, Nature Printing, and Hemp Jewelry. These workshops always reflect the concern for going green and repurposing materials that would otherwise be cast aside and are available around us.
