The Southborough Library has relaunched its “Crafternoon” series. This summer, they are bringing back popular crafter Mandy Roberge to lead four more workshops.

The craft projects are mainly geared to teenagers. (The first session also welcomes adults, and the last allows 12 year olds.)

Up first is decoupage jars. This time, patrons will decorate mason jars. In the past, Roberge described:

All it takes is some carefully cut pages from old books, patterned paper, and magazines to turn a simple jar into an intricate work of art – whether it is to be used as a decorative holder or a tiny lantern.

The free craft sessions all take place on Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 – 5:00 pm. Registration is not required to participate.

The schedule for the summer is below. (Click thumbnails to enlarge):

A jewelry making program for teens. Patrons can create their own unique item using colorful beads. Roberge will guide and support them as they access their own imagination to create a one-of-a-kind keychain, bracelet or pair of earrings.
