DIY Adult Craft Project – Paper Mache Bowls. Have extra tissue paper left over after receiving gifts? Upcycle it to create a handmade, one-of-a-kind gift or treasure for your home. This easy craft is fun, but a bit messy, so dress casual and let your creative side loose. We’ll make the piece on Wednesday, May 14, beginning at 6 p.m. and attendees can come back in a few days to pick up their dried bowl. Class is free but class size is limited. Registration required.
