March is for Crafting

The air is chilly, and the days are still short, why not spend time inside your warm local library creating delightful handmade crafts? The month of March is so full of crafting opportunities for adults all over Denver,  you just may be able to make something different each day.

On March 1, design and make your own sticker at the first in a series of evening craft programs at Eugene Field Branch Library's Thursday Night Craft Club. Check the Engage brochure for a new project each week. Join the Byers Branch Library for First Friday, March 2, at Intrepid Soujourner Beer Project to make a button or two. Love Scrabble? Come to the Bear Valley branch on Saturday, March 3 and make a wine glass charm using Scrabble tiles.

There will be a trio of opportunities in March to learn to create fabulous art by folding book pages. This popular program will be offered at the Eugene Field, University Hills and Virginia Village branches.

Make your own lovely scented soap at the Woodbury branch library on Tuesday, March 13 at their Melt & Pour Soap program.  At Block Printing Basics, the creative folks at the Hampden branch will teach you how to carve and print your own art using a rubber carving block.

Finally, winter would not be complete without a variety of opportunities to hand craft something warm and snuggly, and maybe even snarky. In addition to cozy and fun knitting, quilting, and crocheting programs all over the city throughout the month, you can create a sassy, Snarky Cross Stitch at the Schlessman Family branch on Saturday, March 10.

For more information about these and even more fun, stay-inside programs, check our events calendar, the Engage brochure, or contact your local Denver Public Library location.

They all look like fun -- can't wait to pick out a design for the book folding. Thanks for taking the time to choose great crafts and making these available...


Thanks for your comment! We have a variety of programs around our system to enjoy. If you have a specific one you’d like to see let us know. There is also knitting in RiNo that Chris is hosting if you are interested.
