Create, Schmooze, Nosh, and Drink with Old Friends and New
Inspired by the coast-to-coast D-I-Y craft movement, the CJM presents a new series of casual after-work Thursday night Drop-Ins. RitLab invites you to take inspiration from the current exhibition Reinventing Ritual “into your own hands” by creating art with friends, food, drink, and a dose of schmoozing to sweeten the deal. Creative guidance provided freely.
