The pieces were brought to Flaget as part of the Saint Joseph Health System’s Violence Prevention Initiative.

    The Boston Community Center will open its doors to craft lovers and art collectors with the grand opening of the Community Craft Shop 1:30-5 p.m. April 10, featuring door prizes and refreshments.

    The community center has been a workshop and meeting space for Boston craftspeople for decades. A ceramic shop once operated out of the center, which is at 61 Lebanon Junction Road and has sold everything from beer steins and dishes to cookie jars and Christmas trees, said Gladys Greene, who works on quilts at the center about five hours every Wednesday.
