These traditional Greek cookies will melt in your mouth. Some call them Christmas Cookies, Other Greek Wedding Cookies, you’ll call them delicious!

The family has used pecans ever since. These cookies make a great gift. However after tasting them you may not want to give them away.

Resin

with Melissa Corbin, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Dec 6, 2022 at 6 pm

This class will teach you how to make shelf sitters, compacts with mirrors, large horse, bookmarks and many other things with resin.  This is a 2 part class.

The first class will teach you how to mix the resin, color it and pour.  It takes about 24 hours to cure the resin.  The next class you will come and if it's done you can take it out of the mold and put the finishing touches on it.  

Some people may have a mold that they choose to do 2 different colors. The second class will be pouring the second color.   These make beautiful gifts and is a fun and a little sticky activity to do.

**We will be adding more molds to this class over the summer so there will be a variety of things to choose from. We have an elephant, horse, wolf, eagle, bear and moose.**
