Workshops will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 PM. All meetings will take place remotely via Zoom and Magmastudio. Opportunities for artwork to be displayed will be offered thanks to our community partners, Cilantros Specialty Foods in Guilford and The Marketplace at Guilford Food Center.
