Nothing says Christmas like a gingerbread house.  Sweet Street Art will present a gingerbread making workshop from 10am-1pm and 1:30-4:30pm on Sunday, December 4th at the Institute of Contemporary Art (100 Northern Avenue).  But don’t expect your typical traditional gingerbread houses.  These ones will have an urban twist.  The edible urban structures inspired by the ICA’s architecture will be decorated with street artist-inspired candy art too.  The workshop is suitable for children ages 6 and up with adults.  Space is limited, so register by November 30th by calling 617-478-3103.
