(This project requires use of knife. Since the instructor’s eyes can’t be on all participants at all times, if the participant is a child who can’t use these tools safely unsupervised, an adult is needed to accompany them -free of charge- in working on their project! An adult helper for a child is welcome for any of Soupy’s crafts regardless of tools used.)
