Our February all-day meeting will be Sunday, February 3, from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm at the Darien Municipal Center, 1710 Plainfield Road, Darien. Instead of a typical workday, this meeting will be more of a techniques buffet! Listed below are the scheduled technique demos and presenters, along with any supplies you should bring to try those techniques yourself. Be prepared to take notes, and bring along a lunch and beverage. You may also bring treats to share as well as art materials for our swap table. A $5 studio fee will apply.
