The Southborough Library is continuing its “Crafternoon” series led by popular crafter Mandy Roberge of Wicked Good Henna.

The free workshops are for ages 8+ and will be held in-person at the Library.

With limited space in the hands-on series, Registration is required for each session. (Don’t wait too long. Next month’s Glass Ornaments session is already full with a waitlist.)

Below, I’m listing the upcoming sessions that still have room, including one tomorrow. Each takes place on a Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 – 5:00 pm.

This workshop teaches participants a technique known as “flooding” using royal icing. Each child will be able to decorate an assortment of Star Wars themed cookies.
