Join us for this amazing dollhouse class inspired by my friend at Hatch Studio, Shannon Merenstein. Each child creates their own two story wooden dollhouse beginning with colorful paints for the exterior design and then explore details of interior design with paints, wall papers and art, furniture and all sorts of miniatures. The possibilities are endless and I am always blown away with the houses the kids create. This class is so much fun and sells out quickly. Save your spot today!
