Gift Bags For All Seasons

November 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST


Led by Hope Marshall, Milena Trosini, and Jean Thorpe, Arboretum volunteers

Would you like to create your own unique gift bags for that special person? Join Jenkins volunteers, Hope Marshall, Milena Trosini, and Jean Thorpe, to learn how to turn recycled materials including newsprint, circulars, and brochures into a variety of gift bags and tags just in time for the hostess gifts you will be bringing to holiday parties or for your friends and family birthdays. You will leave this workshop with at least 3 bags of varying sizes and the know-how to continue making them at home. All recycled materials will be provided. Please bring a few sharpened pencils, a ruler, and a single hole punch (if you have one). Also, you are welcome to bring your own recycled materials including greeting cards, circulars, or catalogs and ribbon or cord to use as handles.

Free for members, $5 for non-members
Pre-registration required. Class size is limited.
