This is a series of hands-on arts workshops held monthly at Walnut Cove Public Library to help inspire ideas for the final public art installation and other developments that we would like to see in Walnut Cove and greater Stokes County. It is a time of creativity, fellowship and fun. All are welcome!

Build Community Build is a monthly series held at the Walnut Cove Public Library. The purpose is to make art, discuss what you would like for the final installation of The Lilies Project and to hang out with our neighbors. Maybe even make new friends. This is a very free flow event that will focus on both building community and what we will build as a community. Materials provided. This event is free and open to the public. Read more here.
