Relax and Craft: September

September 23rd at 6:30pm at the Old Town Newhall Library

This free workshop for adults has grown tremendously since its start last Spring! Last month we had 28 crafters; and a lot of fun creating a variety of paper flowers out of old, discarded book pages.

Coming up in September, our project will be repurposing empty mint tins. We’ll make collection boxes, sewing kits and first-aid kits, decorating the tins with fabrics, images and found objects.

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