Encouraging creativity, encouraging relationships

Create-Relate meets on the second Monday of each month. Together we craft, learn new skills, fellowship and encourage one another. We begin promptly at 6:30 pm and work until 9:30. This year, registration is required. Please register at least a week prior so we can have the necessary materials for your kit(s), and pay in cash (costs are listed in each description).

If you’d prefer to come and just hang out, we’ll have adult coloring books, calligraphy pages and Zen-tangle (creative doodling) books available for free. Another option is to work on your own project that you bring from home. Don’t forget to bring a snack and a friend!

Bring your own quart-size (or larger) glass jar(s) with smooth sides. A large spaghetti jar works well. We’ll provide you with a choice of designs to etch into the glass. If you wish, you may fill your jar(s) from a choice of yummy fillings at $2 each.

Get a jump start on the perfect Mother’s Day creations as we put together handmade paper flowers to add to a card or picture frame. This was one of our most popular crafts from 2019. We will also learn how to make beautiful tissue paper flowers.
