The Education Department at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, located at 715 W. Main Street, has planned two upcoming workshops, one for children and one for adults, themed around Valentine's Day.
The Polymer Clay Valentine Jewelry Workshop (for teens and adults) will be held on Saturday, February 11th from 12:00pm-4:00pm. Instructor Dr. Ron Lehocky will teach participants how to use polymer clay to create cookie-themed and free-form hearts, which can be made into pins and necklace pendants. A portion of the proceeds from this workshop will be donated to the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies. Dr. Lehocky's Heart Pin Project has been raising money for the Kids Center for the past five years. The cost is $37 for KMAC Members and $42 for non-members. Register by calling (502) 589-0102 or email [email protected]
The Shrink Film Valentine Gift Drop-In Workshop (for children ages 4 and up), will be held on Monday, February 13th from 11:00am-2:00pm. Schools are closed for parent/teacher conferences, so families can stop by and spend 20-30 creating a magnet or pendant and a handmade gift bag. No reservations required. The cost is $6 per participant.
