Feeling crafty? Cleveland Public Library offers arts and craft activities for the entire family. Its take-and-make program offers kids the chance to work on a project with supplies they can pick up at their local branch library. This month’s program is, not surprisingly, Halloween-themed.
For older kids and teens ages 10-17, there’s the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the Rockport Branch where they can explore innovative technology. That includes professional recording, mixing, editing, and video equipment, green screen, vinyl cutters, sewing machines, button makers, and 3D printers. There’s also virtual programming. Go to Instagram @teentechatcpl to learn more.
Cleveland Public Library is also helping makers learn how to make money from their hobbies. A workshop called Turning Your Art into a Business is happening now through December 12, where fashion, fine arts, and music professionals will share information about the legal and business aspects of their creative disciplines. Register here to attend.
Finally, CPL’s Maker Faire will happen — virtually this year on Saturday, November 7. The event offers engineers, artists, scientists, and crafters the chance to show off their projects and discoveries. More informationcan be found here.
