Arts and crafts are a wonderful way to express yourself creatively.
While many people think of arts and crafts as only for children, adult crafting has surged in popularity over the years.
Here are some great opportunities for people to get crafty at the library.
To celebrate Star Wars Day on May 4, the library is offering two Star Wars-themed crafts. First, an all-ages craft that runs from 10 a.m. to noon (register via WS Play online with barcode 22873) and second, a STEM craft for ages 7+ that runs from 4 to 5 p.m. You can register for this program via WS Play online using barcode 22854.
The library’s Cosplay Club takes from 2 to 4p.m. on Saturdays from May 14 to June 11. Cosplay is all about creating and wearing costumes to look like characters from your favourite movies, books, TV shows, and games. The library staff will show you how you can use the library’s Makerspace resources to make all kinds of costumes, from the simple to the complex.
Teens are encouraged to express their creativity in the Do-It-Yourself Club. Each session features a different art, craft, or technique for teens to try. Visit the library May 4 from 7 to 8 p.m. or May 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. to try this month’s DIY creation.
Adults will want to check out the Cricut Creations: Greeting Cards program on May 26 from 7 to 8 p.m. A Cricut is a lot like a printer, but instead of printing ink on paper, it cuts shapes out of paper, vinyl, or other materials. They’re easy to use and extremely flexible, making them a great tool for crafters. You can register for this program via WS Play online using barcode 22858. Supplies will be provided to make five greeting cards.
