All materials are included, but students may wish to bring the following optional items:

  • A personal apron (though we’ll have extras handy)
  • A notebook or sketchbook for taking notes 
  • (optional) A book to repurpose. We’ll have plenty of books on hand, but feel free to bring one from home to see if it’s a good option for the activity
