Skill Level: Beginner
Ages: 18+ (kids welcome to paint the bookends with parental supervision towards the end of the workshop)

The perfect bookends can be hard to find, so come make your own! We’ll use reclaimed wood to cut out creative designs like mountains, animal silhouettes, or other geometric shapes to build custom bookends. You’ll learn basic woodworking skills and have a unique project to take home!
