Relax and Craft: November and December 2015

We are taking the month of November off and we will hold an early Relax and Craft session in December.

Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:30pm at the Old Town Newhall Library.

Walk through the aisles of your favorite home store and you will see that geometric design is everywhere. Our project this month is inspired by a traditional Finnish holiday decorative technique called Himmeli. We will be creating 3 dimensional prisms using coffee stirrers and fishing line. These look great on a tree, hanging in front of a window, or made into a mobile.

Step-by-step instructions will be given, as well as a printed picture guide.

Supported by the Friends of the Santa Clarita Public Library, this is a free workshop. No prior registration is required.

All About Bob
