Did you know there are 8 different park departments in Hendricks County? As the Parks Foundation, we partner with them all in different ways to fit their community’s needs. One way is hosting a master calendar to find all park events/programs in one place.
You may also find programs from other park partners that support our mission in some way. If you host community events and would like to get on our calendar email us at email@example.com.
When you find an event or program you want to attend please double-check with the park host before showing up. Sometimes details get changed or we make small mistakes when entering the information. To be on the safe side, always check. You can find the host department in every calendar listings for your convenience.
Have fun at our parks!

Upcycled Knitting Needles to Earrings
October 26, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$35
We’ll take cut up ‘beads’ from aluminum knitting needles and use the wonderful palette of colors to make 3 pairs of bright and unique recycled material earrings to keep or give as gifts!
Jennifer Davies has been turning old metal knitting needles and crochet hooks into whimsical jewelry and accessories for 8 years under the name of Bur Oak Studio. She was inspired by the knitters in her family, including her mom and step-mom. Modern knitters lean towards wood/bamboo needles & hooks, but most have some of the old styles-like the ones we all learned on!

All materials and tools are provided for this easy, creative class. No prior jewelry making experience needed!
Recommended for ages 10 through adult.
