Loving this crisp fall weather or wishing for the warmth of summer? Either way, this Handi-hour has you covered. Using dried autumn leaves or pressed wild flowers, come and make your own decorative candle or a bookmark. Keep your crafts for yourself or get a jump-start on those holiday gifts. Check out the videos below for a primer on crafting with dried and pressed foliage. Join us on Thursday, November 10 at the Renwick to put those ideas to good use. While you're crafting, enjoy a crisp brew from Denizens Brewing and music from the Brad Pugh duo.

Tickets are sold out for this month, but check back in with us on February 6th when tickets go on sale for our February 22nd Handi-hour.
