Winter Workshop: Candle Holder

Celebrate the holiday season and create uniquely festive decorations. These workshops are open to the public and suitable for ages 10 and up.

When you sit down for holiday dinners this year, wouldn't it be cool to light up the space with a candle holder of your own making?

In this festive workshop, our metal shop team will guide you through the process of making your very own candle holder! Choose from a variety of wintry patterns and learn to cut, bend, and rivet metal. 
 

Winter Workshop: Snow Globe

Celebrate the holiday season and create uniquely festive decorations. These workshops are open to the public and suitable for ages 10 and up.

Last year's snow came down all at once in the Philly area. So why wait on forecasters to predict the weather this winter season? Make your own predictions this year with a warm and fuzzy reminder of winters past.

In this workshop you'll create your own incredible, miniature snow kingdom using some commonly found household items and a little laser cutter magic.
