DAVA is a wonderful destination for handmade holiday gifts. Youth experimented with a wide range of materials and techniques to create natural products, ceramic succulent pots and soap dishes, paintings, prints and bug houses. There are carefully crafted soaps and lotions from organic ingredients, along with prints of birds and locally grown plants. Scrap wood from DAVA’s construction site was used to make houses for bugs and mixed media paintings. You will find treasures to keep or give away!
