Creative Cards Workshops

NEW!! We are so excited to bring this workshop to the Park District. Come join Debbie Benenhaley and Julie Juhl for a time of crafting fun. With over 13 years of experience putting on these workshops, Debbie and Julie will work with each person to create beautifully crafted and one of a kind cards. All the materials and supplies will be provided along with step by step instructions. Each separate workshop will consist of creating two cards specific to the Holiday season or special event. Why spend time at the store trying to select the "perfect" card when you can make one yourself! You can find the complete listing of all of the Workshops below. Please note that the pictures are shown as an example. The pictured cards do not indicate what will be crafted during workshops.
