Workshop Fun for the No-School Winter Break!



The Salmon House Writers Workshop is presenting its first winter holiday workshop for ages 8-12! Cozy holidays stories, friends, and crafts; what could be better during those no-school days before Christmas?

Holiday Tales and Book Making Workshop  for 8-12 year olds                                                        Dec. 21st through Dec. 23rd                                                                                                                        1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

In this fun three day workshop students will enjoy listening to a variety of traditional and modern holiday stories,  learning story crafting basics, and creating their own holiday tale.

On day three, special guest artist and teacher Karen Rainsong of Singing Creek Educational Center will teach us to bind the stories we’ve created into a handmade storybook to share with family and friends.

All materials provided. Please bring a snack. Tuition is $90 per student .
