League of NH Nashua Fine Craft Gallery Classes

At this time we are offering classes to people who are fully vaccinated.  When you register you will be asked if you are fully vaccinated.  If you are not yet fully vaccinated but plan to be by the time the class begins you will be asked again the day of the class.  This will be on the honor system.  Proof of vaccination will not be requested – we trust our students to be respectful of others and therefore honest.  I apologize if this policy causes anyone distress or annoyance.  We will re-visit this policy before the next session (beginning Jan 2022).  – Ruth Boland, Owner

Each ring is then shaded and highlighted to give the circle a ­three-dimensional, button look. This class’ Zen Button will be drawn in tones of sepia, black, and white, and finished with a wooden button.
