The Carbondale Branch Library invites you to improve your art skills or learn something new as we work on a project in the Teen Artist Workshop on Thursday, January 2nd at 4 p.m. This workshop features different projects every month, which will be held on the first Thursday of every month. This month, join Youth Services Librarian Jeannine Stickle to learn how to make beautiful prints on fabric and paper using a stamp created from a potato. Bring your own objects to print on (t-shirts, pillow cases, school bags, etc.) or print on patches provided the library and sew them on later.
