Tacoma Art Place, our town’s community-based art studio on the Hilltop, is offering a free community day this Saturday. Workshops from 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. range from egg decorating to crocheting, plus there are raffle prizes, refreshments and a silent auction.
There are also tours of the studio. Tacoma Art Place was founded as a place for anyone in the community to have a place and equipment to make art, and for a small membership or drop-in fee you can make use of their kilns, cameras, sewing machines, tools, tables, supplies and expertise.
