The Atlantic Institute is proud to announce a new program: Cultural Creations! We know that many people are staying home on their computers, so we decided to embark on a virtual cultural journey of crafting demonstrations and lessons that we can share with our community. We will feature monthly demonstrations shared via Zoom that will highlight a culture through its crafts. This is a great way to experience a new craft and ask questions if needed. Please sign up for classes that interest you. All classes will start at 2pm.
