On November 29, the Wall Street Journal, page 1, announced: trending this year: Finger Strength is Important. The Journal was following elite rock climbers in Brooklyn. We are bringing it to New Haven hands.

Give your fingers a workout.

~ Sand, decorate, assemble and master our newest LASER cut finger top.
~ Take finger painting to a new level by learning from masters of the art.
~ Shape Sculpey Birds that perch on hardwood blocks, inspired by the artist Kiara Matos.
~ Grasp the basics of Shadowography.
~ Make Slime, a cousin of Silly Putty which was invented in New Haven to heal hands.

The day we will be punctuated with exercises to stretch and strengthen your fingers…and your appreciation of them.

Fee: 65.00
