SRAC is offering workshops to help you get creative with your Christmas ideas this year and at an affordable price. The workshops will be held every Saturday in November and December until Christmas. From glass art to children's books, there will be a different workshop every Saturday at SRAC available to help participants make or get get special gifts with all supplies and processing included in the registration price in most cases.
SRAC is also inviting the participants to bring a child to share in the fun of each workshop at no additional cost while making that one special gift together. SRAC's Deb Twigg explains, "There are many memories that I have of the Christmas holidays. Many of them are of making or finding special items for someone, or receiving that special gift that someone made or picked out with me in mind. These are gifts that took more thoughtfulness than money. This along with the current economic times gave us the idea to make these workshops available for others to experience the joy of giving gifts that are sure to be special for those that give and receive them."
