In keeping with the nature art theme, the hatchery will also host an Autumn Fabric Painting Workshop on Saturday, September 20th, 2008.  Enjoy a day of crafty creating as instructor Mary Shear leads you in designing your own fall inspired painted sweatshirt.  The event will begin at 9:00am and will conclude at 12noon CT, and the cost is $8.00 per person.  Students will need to bring a sweatshirt of their choice (at least 50% cotton but 100% preferably).
