Workshop for Students
Join the Rye Youth Council, Big Picture Foundation, and The Rye Arts Center for an afternoon of making hats -- with a loom! No experience necessary. The hats we make will be delivered in Westchester and Fairfield Counties to kids in need of winter warmth. When the hats are finished, Splurge Gifts of Greenwich will include them in care packages that will be delivered to Kids in Crisis, a nonprofit that "ensure the well-being of children through vital 24-hour services."
Tuesday, November 20th * 3:30 - 6:30 pm
Pizza and water will be provided! Community service hours offered.
Kids who participate in the Night of Hat Looming should bring their own looms and one skein of yarn. Thicker yarn can be easier to use. 4 packs of looms can be purchased at Michael's Arts and Crafts and at Amazon.com (links below). Medium and large looms produce hats that are in greater demand than hats made with baby sized looms, but all size hats are welcome.
