We improvise a lot, and that is very fun.” ‑Henry, age 9

In Weaving Wilderness, we will blend together the worlds of nature and crafting! Children that register for this class will partake in expeditions to local parks to learn about native plants, insects and animals through the changing seasons. Back in the classroom, we will construct functional and fantastical creations, exploring themes such as hibernation, germination, and new growth. Empower your child to learn and create with the natural world around them, sign up today!
