Pokemon Polymer Clay Workshop, Rye Arts Center, Rye

On Friday, Aug. 12, join the Rye Arts Center for a Pokémon Polymer Clay Workshop, and learn how to craft your very own Pikachu and Gengar character sculptures. The two-hour workshop will also teach students basic polymer techniques that can be used again and again, making this a steal for just $22. The class runs 9 am-11 am, but hurry and reserve your seat before it fills up.
