While you wait for your bag to dry, color and make your own musical instrument novelty buttons! Designed by artists Hannah & Todd Churn, express your musical passions by selecting from a broad range of images from boom boxes and bass fiddles – FREE
The Hands-On activities are free…, but you can fill your new bag with crafts and other items for purchase in the vendor area! Curated by GRUMP, Arlington’s popular winter arts & crafts show, a select group of local makers has been assembled for your shopping enjoyment. Watercolor prints, unique handmade terrariums, plush made from old sweaters and so much more…
