Each week will feature a new type of craft like pottery. Try the featured craft via an introductory project using the necessary tools. All ages are welcome.

Please register by calling the library or online at www.crlibrary.org on the events page.

Some of the crafts may be difficult for children younger than 12 because they use tools or techniques that may need adult assistance. If your child is younger than 12, we ask that a caregiver/older sibling (over the age of 12) attend to assist. For questions, please contact Jen at eilersj@crlibrary.org. Registration is suggested as supplies are limited. In order to complete the project, attendance is required for both dates for classes marked (*).
