Workshop: Upcycling Gift Bags and Boxes

The Carrollton Center for the Arts’ Gallery Play workshop, Upcycled Gift Bags & Boxes, on November 23, will show participants how to make and decorate colorful gift containers using an assortment of art materials, recyclables and their own creativity.

“It is amazing to me what you can do with bits of paper, scraps from craft projects and other leftover items,” said the center’s visual arts coordinator, Marcella Kuykendall. “This workshop will be a creative exploration of upcycling craftiness, with Alan Kuykendall participating as one of the instructors. If you have a particular small present in mind or want to purchase a piece from our Small Packages exhibit, we can help come up with ideas to beautifully conceal that special gift.”

The workshop runs from 6 – 7:00 p.m. All ages are welcome, but young children will need assistance from their parents. Those wanting an evening of the arts can stick around for the Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors, which starts at 7:30 p.m. The registration fee for the workshop is $10. Amahl tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for youth. Call 770-838-1083 or visit https://carrolltonarts.com/ to register, buy tickets or for more information.
