Handi-hour on Friday, November 13th is SOLD OUT! For those who were unable to get tickets and those who want to get an idea of the crafts ahead of time, we have three different crafts that we'll be making that evening. Public program coordinator Gloria Kenyon demonstrates how to make each craft in individual videos.

Make a marble necklace inspired by Maya Lin's Folding the Chesapeake.

Or create a holiday wreath based on Patrick Dougherty's large sapling installation, Shindig, with greenery from SI Gardens.

Write home about the newly renovated Renwick on stationery inspired by Chakaia Booker's ANONYMOUS DONOR.

In addition to crafts, we'll have craft beer from two local breweries, small bites catered by a D.C. restaurant, and live music. Keep an eye on our calendar for the next Handi-hour, which will be on February 10th, 2016.
