On January 5 the Woods Hole Public Library will begin a series of craft workshops for children. The programs will run on all Saturday afternoons at 2 PM, throughout January and February. All of the sessions are free, and there will be no charge for materials. All the crafts will be easy enough for young children to do, yet attractive enough that children up to age 10 will enjoy making them. Registration will not be required for most of these workshops. As an additional attraction, a program of Yoga for Kids, also at no charge, will run immediately prior to the workshops.
All of the crafts will be so easy to make, that they will be “self- serve’, with parents and caregivers overseeing the construction, although librarians will be available if any questions arise.
The series will be called “Crafternoons,” as it has for the last two winters of successful offerings. The first session will be weaving on a handmade loom made of cardboard. Future afternoons will see the construction of wooly bears made of yarn, animals created from pine cones and cork, fortune cookies made of felt, and more.
The Woods Hole Library is at 581 Woods Hole Road, on the right hand side of the road as it curves into the village. For more information, call the Library at 508-548-8961 or visit the website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.
