Bring the family to the studio!
Join us for a grown-up/child collaborative workshop to create a funky and beautiful gratitude sculpture or mobile for your home and/or table! However you give thanks, and whoever you call family, we welcome you to come + create a thank-you sculpture with us!
While we give thanks for what we have, we will also take action to co-create a better world. At the workshop, learn about the Maine based program NASAP, The New American Sustainable Agriculture Project.* A portion of funds raised for this workshop will be donated to NASAP, and someone from the organization will come and share with us about their training and sustainable farming program here in Maine. We will also be creating additional thank-you leaves to share with those in NASAP that farm the land and provide food for us.
All ages welcome.
When: Sunday, November 18th, 1 – 2:30 pm
Who: Grown-ups with children, all ages welcome!
Led by Love Lab teaching Team.
Where: At the studio – Love Lab Studio, 26 Brackett Street, Portland, Maine
Extra sweet: for all our family/grown-up with child winter workshops, we’ll have nice warm drinks (in real mugs) + extra twinkle/lantern-like lights up (think hygge–Danish concept of warmth–and extra cozy)!

*The New American Sustainable Agriculture Project (NASAP) is a refugee and immigrant farmer training program, primarily based out of two incubator farms in Lisbon and Falmouth, Maine. In an effort to support New Americans and to strengthen the regional food system, NASAP teaches ecological farming practices and provides year-long technical and fiscal training to program participants. Many of our participants were farmers in the countries they have immigrated from (Somalia, Kenya, Afghanistan, Republic of Congo, South Sudan, and Rwanda to name a few) and our program works with them to transfer the necessary skills, techniques, and knowledge required to farm in their new home of Maine.
