Acrylic Ornament Pour

This event takes place on Wednesday, December 1 with two classes: one at 1:00 p.m. and the other at 2:00 p.m. Each one-hour class is limited to six participants.

Come learn the popular paint technique called Acrylic Pour! You’ll make 4-6 glass holiday ornaments in colors of your choice, all ready for gifting or decorating your own home. It’s fun and easy.

The cost for the class is $5.00 and all materials are included. Marbling artist, Heidi Finley, will lead the class in her home studio.

The craft is messy, so participants should wear unimportant clothing and shoes. The ornaments need a day to dry and will be available at the Petoskey Friendship Center for pick-up later in the week.
