Among all of the bills and junk we get in the mail, who doesn’t love to receive a card from a friend? And a handmade card is even better! This class will teach you how to make lovely greeting and holiday cards using a variety of papers, fabrics, magazine pages, rubber stamps, washi tape and more. Examine multiple samples that will inspire you, then receive hands-on instruction as you build cards with colorful layers and images. You’ll take home several completed cards (along with envelopes) and plenty of tips and tricks to continue constructing thoughtful cards for every occasion. Note: All materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring materials to cut up, such as magazines and books, thin fabric, wrapping paper and handmade paper.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
