Winter is coming! Squirrels and chipmunks are busy collecting acorns and hiding them. What birds will migrate or stay? How will fish survive the winter?

Come and try Chinese papercutting with Zhonghe (Elena) Li! She will introduce the history of the art and teach you the basic techniques. You will then choose your favorite template, featuring the many animals that live in and along the Connecticut River, and make your own papercutting artwork.
