Make a Merit Badge (Hosted by Greenpoint Hand Skills)

Apr 2, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

DIY Merit badge

For style points — or brownie points — make a wooden brooch, perfect for commemorating an achievement or simply for upping your flair. At April’s workshop, we’ll supply paints and wooden bases for you to adorn with images, patterns, and embellishments. These wooden badges also make excellent gifts.

This free class is open to adults of all skill levels—no craft experience required. Space is limited in the cozy library meeting room and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. To guarantee a spot at this workshop, please acquire a ticket from the Info Desk. Space is limited to 22 people. Please arrive by 12 p.m. for the demo.

Note: this will be the last Greenpoint Hand Skills workshop until the fall.

Our DIY workshops (for grown-ups) are designed to be fun, social gatherings to bring together our neighbors through craft.
