In celebration of Fabulate!, our fashion exhibition, Creativity Explored is hosting a family-friendly public workshop on Saturday, October 13, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at our Sixteenth Street studio and gallery.

We will provide a headband, some craft supplies, and glue to begin building your piece. Attendees are encouraged to bring extra materials to use or share.
