Crafternoons – School’s Out
Need a break from technology? Emily will be here to help you unplug with a bunch of fun quick crafts in the Computer Lab. Try your hand at beginner knitting, friendship bracelets, duct tape designs, and felties. Craft supplies are at the ready if you just want to drop by and hang out, or you can bring a project you’re working on (remember, we’re in a computer lab, so keep the projects you bring simple and non-messy, please). And if you’re not into crafting and you want to be, stop by! We’ll find something for you to make. The goal of Teen Crafternoons is to learn, share, and create cool crafts, so feel free to offer suggestions for crafts and projects! Contact Email: teens@icpl.org.
