Holding Happiness: Creating a Keepsake Box

March 26, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

March 26 | 7:00-8:30PM EST

Participants will be guided in painting a wooden “keepsake” box. Keepsake boxes can be used to hold objects that are meaningful, especially those related to someone you may have lost or miss. While this is a guided activity, participants will be able to decorate the box as they wish. There will be space to share their designs and discuss why they are important to them.

Kits containing all materials needed to complete this activity will be provided. Please register early to ensure your kit can be shipped to you in time for the event. *Limited supplies are available.
