Upcoming Classes

birdbath-2015Good CRAFTERNOON!
Small Concrete Bird Bath / Bird Feeder
Saturday, November 28th from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.

Join us for another fun make and take workshop – this time crafting a lovely, classic (approx. 10-12″ tall and wide) bird bath / bird feeder standing on a shapely pedestal for setting out in the garden, or even on a table. I think it would also look lovely with succulents planted within it!

If you loved working with the quick dry concrete in our past classes, you will also love this garden delight. Very easy and fun! Appropriate for ages 12 to 112.

We provide all the materials – you provide the creativity. With the holidays are just around the corner, this would be great for gifts or filling it with Yuletide bling!

The cost is $38.00 plus tax. Sign up soon, as classes fill up fast. Call our cashiers at (925) 447-0280 or drop in and see our sample in person!
