Presented by Danielle Lutz & Shannon McWilliams
Workshop fee for materials – $25 (see Registration Desk for tickets)

Join us to create your OWN one-of-a-kind Curiosity Cabinet In-A-Jar!

A predecessor to the modern museum, the Cabinet of Curiosity dates back to the 16th century. Often housing a collection of objects including natural history, geology, historical relics, and antiques, they have a rich history across a spectrum of humble collectors and prominent socialites. In this workshop, we will be crafting our OWN miniature version inside a glass jar! Limit: one jar per person, and all materials will be provided. Fee: $25 per person (per jar).
