Making a Memory Book: Part I - with Author Kathleen Hughes
Use your writing skills and creativity to tell your stories - you may start a new family tradition!
Memory books and scrapbooks can contain important pieces of a family's history. Their thought-provoking contents assembled from photographs, keepsakes, and written reflections can help you and your loved ones recall and honor the people, places, and times that you hold dear.
Note: Please bring scrapbooks, journals, materials, and/or projects in progress to work on in class. Feedback and instruction will be provided. Part 2 of this class will be held on Sunday, May 8 (same time & location).
Registration is strongly encouraged. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 455-8057 and leave your name and contact information.
Please bring cash, check, or money order with you on the day of class. Exact change is always appreciated.
