Christmas is coming, and we have a great gift you can make for the ladies in your life! Linda Klyman will be here to help you make an “Alcohol Ink Pendant”. This necklace is a washer that is hand stamped with alcohol inks. Each is a different and unique piece of art. It is protected and sealed with a high gloss glaze for quality. The washer is strung onto black cord. We recommend taking necklace off prior to bathing/swimming. Each necklace is unique due to variations of the ink. Class size is limited to 20. You must register to attend by Friday, Dec. 6th. Cost is $5.00 per person due at registration. You may make 2 necklaces. If we have extra materials left you may make additional necklaces for $2.00 each.
We are hosting a class on coloring a scarf for the holidays. For $15.00 you will receive 1 hour of instruction from a local artisan, along with enough materials to create the scarf and you keep it when you are done. This scarf will make a great gift for that special someone on your holiday list. This is an entry level class and no prior experience is required. A signup sheet is available at the circulation desk. This class is limited to 15 people so please stop in or call 309-523-3440 no later than Wednesday November 27th.
