I'm so happy to be here! Please join me for this fun class! We will construct a small wagon, a suitable size for travel, but the technique learned can be applied to any size for future wagons. The inside will display your theme of choice, a holiday, a memory, a special event, etc. preserved forever behind glass with soft lighting from inside the top.
