Join us once a month to help prepare and pack up craft kits. These kits are donated free of charge to the Tacoma Public Library. The libraries then distribute them to the community so people of all ages can learn new skills and explore their creative side. Packing parties include prepping and stuffing of supplies into ziplock bags. We make 300 kits each month, so prepare for lots of repetitive motion. Light refreshments are available, but feel free to bring food/drink for yourself.

Then we will set you free with your wood to let your imagine run wild. Instructors will be on hand to answer questions and help out the entire time, but what you create will be up to you.
