For the fourth year, The Library will be hosting a series of crafting classes for adults and teens, offered monthly on Sunday afternoons throughout the winter. The classes are supported by the Friends of the Library and led by our artist in residence Jennifer Langhammer. The classes are free of charge and most supplies are provided.
Past programs have included instruction on making handmade books, marble paper, block prints, jewelry, snow globes, and a host of other projects. Jennifer chooses simple crafts that anyone can do and get beautiful results. Participants do not need to be experienced crafters or artists to come to these classes. The programs offer something for the beginner as well as the expert, and are a great opportunity to get to together with friends and other members of the community and spend a few hours creating something.
This year’s Adult Craft series at the Vineyard Haven Library will begin Sunday November 9th. At 1pm, Jennifer will demonstrate a variety of image transfer techniques, and participants will complete a project. This is a great technique to use to make personalized homemade Christmas presents or cards. Participants are invited to bring in their own images to transfer, as well as any surface they would like to transfer images onto including cloth, wood, glass, paper, and stone.
Upcoming Adult Craft programs at Vineyard Haven Public Library are listed in the newspaper’s Calendar section, and on the library’s website, www.vhlibrary.org. To receive email invitations for future programs, send an email to Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Craft” in the subject line.
