Do it Yourself Fun

by Ellen Griffin Shade, Avondale Regional Branch Library



Do you enjoy arts and crafts? We do too! At the Avondale Library, we started offering a jewelry-making workshop for adults once a month last summer, and now we offer arts and crafts programming weekly, with a different program every Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m.

All programs are free but space is limited, so register online through the BPL events calendar, call 226-4000, or drop by the circulation desk to reserve your spot. We also offer drop-in adult coloring stations that are available anytime, and we have a great selection of craft books to check out.

Upcoming Programs
Wednesday, August 2, 2:00 p.m. Club Create - Come together to create something new! We'll tackle a new craft project each month, with instruction and materials provided. Our project this month is making fruit slice coasters.

Wednesday, August 9, 2:00 p.m. Color Club - Explore coloring for adults. This month we're coloring reusable tote bags.

Wednesday, August 16, 2:00 p.m.  Books & Beads - Join us for our monthly jewelry-making adventure. Materials, tools, and instructions are provided, and each participant will complete a jewelry project to take home. Adults of all skill levels are welcome. This month we'll be learning to make beaded leather wrap bracelets.

Wednesday, August 23, 2:00 p.m. Fiber Arts on Fifth Avenue - Knitters, crocheters, and other "fiber artists" of all skill levels can bring their supplies to this informal group to share tips and ideas! The library will have a limited supply of needles and yarn available on a first come, first served basis.

Wednesday, August 30, 2:00 p.m. Wildcard Wednesday: Adventures in Art - Join us for a fun art project, with instruction and materials provided, and complete your own masterpiece to take home.
