Program Description

Event Description

Nebulas are gigantic clouds of interstellar gas and dust in space that are part of the make of the universe. Telescopes, like the James Webb Space Telescope, capture stunning photos that inspire our imagination. In this kit containing colorful images, you will create your own stellar-inspired ready-to-wear nebula jewelry.
