Family Gingerbread House Decorating Workshops

December 3rd in Ridgway

Buckets of candy, oodles of frosting, sticky fingers, heaps of smiles, and a kajillion sugar-coated photo ops. That just about sums up Weehawken Creative Arts' annual gingerbread house decorating event, offered every December to families from all over the region in either Ouray or Ridgway. For over eleven years, Weehawken has presented the "Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Workshops" and this fun, memorable family event serves over 30 families and is a wonderful holiday tradition.

Families must reserve a house in advance ($15 each) and will arrive to the Ridgway Elementary School on December 3rd to find a fully assembled house that just needs the magic of imagination and decoration. Once families check-in, they peruse surreal tables of candy and goodies that can be added to the structures with oodles of frosting. As a team, families decorate their house and then get to take the house home for enjoyment during the holiday season. Additional donations are gladly accepted and appreciated for this program as it runs well over $1000 to provide the service to participants.

Both of the 2017 workshops are set for Sunday, December 3rd in Ridgway: one will run from 1:00-3:00 pm  a second session will run from 3:30-5:30 pm. Registrations will be accepted starting November 15th and will be taken until the spaces are filled.

Registrations are taken through Weehawken Creative Arts by phone at 970.318.0150 or online.
