Perler Beads are small colorful blocks that you can arrange into any image you can imagine, that are then fused together with heat. Everyone can make at least one item which can be wall art, a picture frame, a keychain or a magnet.
There will be no sign-up for the program but space and time is limited on a first come, first served basis.
