Craft steps out of the studio and into the hearts of Philadelphians with CraftNOW Create!
This year Smith Memorial Playground has invited us to host CraftNOW Create outside on their beautiful campus Saturday, November 6 from 11am-2pm. Demonstrations and take-home kits will be set up on their wrap-around porch and immediately in front of the Playhouse.
Most projects are ideal for elementary-aged students. More details will be made available Fall 2021. Click below to see our 2020 activities.
