:: De-Stress Candle Making Event! ::

:: De-Stress Candle Making Event! ::

Today was a fun day at the Craft Centre! 
We listened to good music while making scented candles and eating delicious pastries! 
If you made candles with us you can pick them up in the next 2-3 days to make sure they are completely molded and ready to be removed from the tins.

Screen Printing for Artathon!

It was an exciting morning at the Craft Centre today! Our very own Randy Kruser taught participants of Artathon how to screen print shirts today. Everything went very well, and we were impressed with the student's work!

If you are interested in learning how to screen print we have classes every semester, and of course students get a discount!

Also! Don't forget the space is free to use so if you already know how to screen print feel free to come on in and get printing!
