Artist Trading Cards: Victorian Christmas and New Year's Cards

Saturday November 17th, 1:30pm-3:30pm

Artist Trading Cards are miniature works of original art created on 2"x3" or 64mm x 89mm card stock which are then traded with others at a session such as this! Artist Mary Bennett will lead this event with some materials provided (feel welcome to bring your own materials of preference, such as old Christmas / New Year's cards, or materials which do not involve water or permanent markers). We will also be revealing a Victorian scrapbook of collected greeting cards from our archive and briefly speaking about this special piece before the art session begins at 2pm. Refreshements provided.

Entry by donation.
