Creative Holiday Workshops at Art of Recycle

Oct 31, 2014 07:01PM

Art of Recycle, a non-profit community art center in Ephrata, will offer two holiday workshops in December. Children (ages three and up) can expel some creative energy at the Make Felt Holiday Ornaments workshop from 1 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m., December 12. Adults and older kids interested in making their holiday packages stand out under the tree can take one of three Creative Christmas Wrapping workshops; 6 p.m. on December 16, 1 p.m. on December 17 or 11 a.m. on December 18.

A creative reuse and thrifty craft store, Art of Recycle is made entirely of recycled materials, down to the yellow brick road on the floor. The center features a free crafting area built to look like a castle and filled with supplies to inspire one-of-a-kind creations, as well as a Magic Puppet Theater main stage with a two-level climbing tree and a sound effects machine made from the insides of an old piano.

Crafters looking for a bargain can browse the craft store for fabrics, scrapbooking supplies, woodcrafts, ceramics and more at affordable prices. The center survives on the sales of the donated art supplies so customers can rest assured that their purchases support a great cause.

Cost: $5 donation for Creative Christmas Wrapping; free for Make Felt Holiday Ornaments. Location: 27 N. State St. For more information, call 717-466-6966, email [email protected] or visit
