Cabin Fever Crafting

Join us for free kits of supplies and step-by-step videos to keep your little ones happily creating at home. Cabin Fever Crafting provides fun and hands-on activities for young artists ages 4 - 8 and their siblings and grown-ups. 

  • Stop by the Auditorium every other week to pick up a free kit of supplies from the tote curbside (outside the doors with the salmon mural).

  • Tune in here for an instructional video to go along with your craft. Follow along in real time for instruction and tips. Feel free to pause, go back, or skip ahead as you need to. 

  • If you miss the supplies pick-up you may have supplies at home to participate. Check the supplies list beneath each video.
