243-Creating Community with Ehren Tool

Join us for a day of creating and embellishing cups representing your unique experiences. Veterans and civilians are invited to bring personal items to use in this workshop.

You will use images and medals, along with other items, to make molds and decorate these cups. The dialogue from military and civilian attendees, sharing individual and collective experiences, will create a unique discussion among the attendees of this workshop.

Cups thrown by Ehren Tool will be provided. You will create one-of-a-kind cups that exhibit a representation of your experience.
