Event details

Celebrate National Hobby Month by crafting a handheld habitat, card-sized curiosity cabinet or dollar-sized diorama in a recycled mint tin! A naturalist will join in to discuss different animal habitats, natural environments, curiosity cabinets and other tin-spirations for your project.

All materials will be provided, but if you have small leftovers from previous craft projects of your own, this is a great opportunity to recycle and repurpose!
