What could be more fun than decorating cookies with your Valentine and then making and decorating a heartfelt card? This Cookie Decorating & Card Making Workshop occurs February 11, with three different workshop times to accommodate your busy schedule. 

If cookies aren't your favorite, check out the Valentine's Day Card & Puppet Making workshop at The Pine's Resort on February 12! Make Valentine's Day cards and adorable puppets that you can give to your special someone or keep for yourself (we won't tell!).

Break out the glue and bring your honey to Idle Hour Winery & Kitchen's Valentine's Cork Art Workshop on February 13. Space is limited, so make a reservation online to ensure your date of Cork Heart supplies, a glass of wine and access to a delicious grazing table as you craft!
