Crafternoon – Join this Month’s Craft Workshop!
Crafternoons is a chance to access your inner artist once a month at Alden Lane! It is an opportunity to get together and create something amazing and have a bunch of fun doing it. Even better- invite a couple of friends to do it with you! These make and take projects don’t require any special skills, and kids from 12 to 112 can do them (although younger kids could do it with the help of an adult). Pick one project (or more!) and pre-pay with our Alden Lane Cashiers to reserve your space, as the classes fill up fast. (925)447-0280. If we don’t have 8 sign ups by the Wednesday before the Saturday class, the class will be canceled, so register as soon as possible. Let’s have FUN!

Felted Landscape Art – Crafternoon
Saturday, June 25,  1:30 to 3 pm

Back by popular demand, our own Scottish Felter, Ruth Haddow, will be teaching another felting class, this time using a very beautiful felting technique using several colors to create a lovely pastoral landscape, complete with sheep. Each piece is like a painting, and you will be amazed at the results you can achieve using bits of colored wool as your canvas- suitable for framing! Bring your friends and let’s have a great time! The price for this class is $38.00 + tax. Please sign up by June 20th to make your reservation, as space is limited.
