About this event:

What do you want to make?

Library Assistant Josh will walk you through using one of our machines. Please see below for options, and note what you'd like to use (and what your project idea is) in the "How did you hear about this event?" box. Each registrant will attend a 1 hour session - you will be contacted about whether you are first (4-5PM) or second (5-6 PM).

During these learning experiences, you may experiment with TCPL's raw materials free of cost. If you plan to make multiples or create a large project, please plan to bring your own raw materials.
