Seasonal Ornament Workshop

with
Tom Lundquist
at
HABA Depot Shop
in
Magnolia

We will welcome Tom Lundquist from the East Texas Bluebird Forge to demo holiday gifts at the HABA Forge Shop located on the grounds of the historic Magnolia Train Depot. Tom will demonstrate making small items like icicles, candy canes and christmas trees. Plan to bring your forge and tools and do the same!

Tom will likely have an inventory of items you can obtain for your own gift giving. If you have tools or items you want to bring, tailgating is encouraged.

More info and schedule is available on our event web page Seasonal Ornament Workshop.

Photos of the event have been posted to our Flickr page Ornament Demo at The Depot.
