Friday, January 17, 2020 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
6 and up

Transform old plastic bags into notebooks, bags, belts, cell phone cases, or anything else you can think of! We will use hot irons to melt the plastic into a flexible material you can cut, sew or glue.


Drop in for hands-on, minds-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities! Think creatively and solve problems as you experience the fun of making things.
