Virtual Make & Take - Meet Your Makers!

5 Makers, 5 Projects, 5 Days.

In light of #StayHome and wanting to provide some positivity, distraction, and to kick-start some creative juices, we've partnered with 5 Makers in 5 different industries to encourage you to learn something new and cool while staying at home! 

We hope that these workshops will serve as both educational and therapeutic, so gather your materials, and tune in at 7 pm EST on our Instagram story on the dates below!

Be sure to mark the dates in your calendar! Or even better, you can print out our schedule (right-click on the image and hit "save image as"):
