Even with the ever-increasing postal rates, there are still a small group of us who believe in sending handwritten letters and documenting our vacations through postcards. In this class, we will introduce you to the world of mail art and mail swapping. We will discuss how you can use your artistic talents when sending mail, where to find pen pals, postal rules, the best mail swapping sites and all of the interesting items you can send or potentially receive! Each student will leave with fun mail goodies, new pen pals and a chance to play with our awesome typewriter.

Bring one of the following:
Gluten Free Vegetarian Snacks & Treats
Local Ground Coffee
Postage Stamps
Sun King Beer
Typewriter Ribbon
