Up and Coming Events


Memory Bear Workshop

May 28th 10-5 ADK ArtRise, 62 Main St, Saranac Lake, NY

Registration required-limited capacity- $75/person
The Adirondack Death Care Community in collaboration with ArtRise invites you to the Memory Bear Workshop!
Bring in the clothes of a cherished loved one, and we will teach you how to sew them into a lovable stuffed bear! A representative from High Peaks Hospice and the ADK Death Care Community will be on hand to provide support and facilitate conversations.
The Adirondack Death Care Community is fiscally sponsoring this event, reducing the ticket price per person from $100 to $75.
Please bring the clothing or fabrics you would like to use to make this bear. If you have a sewing machine at home that you are comfortable using, feel free to bring it. We will have some machines on hand, and will be doing some hand sewing. We will provide thread, interfacing, and all other materials.
The class will meet from 10am to 5pm, with a lunch break from 1pm to 2pm.
