Sign-up starts Nov 1 for Rolled Paper Picture Frame

Using upcycled pages from books and magazines, crafters will make a colorful and unique picture frame at the 1 p.m. Saturday, November 15, Crafternoon program at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

All materials for the Rolled Paper Picture Frame will be provided. The program, for adults and teens in middle school and older, is free. Registration is required and starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, November 1, at the Calendar or by calling (920) 322-3929.

Crafternoon takes place every third Saturday of the month with a different make-and-take project. It was inspired by a similar program at the New York Public Library that’s run by Maura Madden, who wrote, Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty with Your Friends All Year Long.

The December Crafternoon project – Dixie Cup Garland – will take place earlier than normal, on December 6, to avoid holiday conflicts.

Crafternoon projects for 2015 include:

  • January 17: Beginning Knitting
  • February 21: Beginning Crochet
  • March 21: Upcycled Glam Accessories
  • April 18: Picture This Photo Frame
  • May 16: Book Page Box Vase/Planter
  • June 20: Woven Map Travel Journal
