Craft Away the Winter Blues with Free CraftSanity Workshops at Kent District Library Branches!

by jennifer


Hello! I’m taking a quick break from end-of-the-semester grading to invite Grand Rapids-area crafters to a series of free workshops I’m hosting with nice folks at several Kent District Library branches. I’ve been traveling across the state to teach workshops at my hometown library for for years and I’m very happy to get the opportunity to teach at libraries here in West Michigan.

As part of my partnership with KDL, I will be teaching paper crafting with recycled books, printmaking and English paper piecing. Scroll down to see the full schedule of adult and teen classes and I hope to see some of you there. (Don’t forget to bring along show and tell. I LOVE to see what you’re making!)

The workshops are free but space is limited, so please register online or call 616-784-2007 ext. 0.
