Gingerbread House Workshop Weekend: December 6-8, 2019

Wolfeboro’s own “Gingerbread Amy” is joining us for a weekend workshop in The Barn at Pickering House! With Amy’s guidance, you will leave with a gift-worthy gingerbread cottage, instructions on how to create more cottages at home, and inspiration to keep creating.
