In this class students will learn how to put together their own bracelet and necklace set. Students will work with natural materials such as leaves, sand and feathers to create a design of their choice. Once the design is set in place a glass cabochon will be glued on using E6000 glue. The pieces will be ready to pick up the following day once the glue has hardened. *E6000 glue toxicity disclaimer up on the website. Instructor: Chelsea Hoitt, $40/person, $34/member
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
