After firing your rabbit’s bust, hands and feet, you’ll hand-sew his costume, decking him out in either a Harlequin/Jester or Dandy/Dapper Theme. Of course, no bunny workshop would be complete without a treat from our instructor, Connie “The Mad Hatter” Smith, who will provide each class with a tea party of scones and finger sandwiches. It’s all in a doll-making day, so hurry don’t be late for this very important date and register today.
