Crafts, Maker Culture, and Creativity

June 24, 2014 | Christine | Comments (1) Facebook Twitter More...

Hey everyone! Do you like to make things? Do you enjoy crafting items out of wool, cloth and thread? Or are you more interested in ways to create things electronically?

If you do, then welcome to the Crafting side of this summer’s Word Out blog.

My name is Christine and I’m a Librarian at the Toronto Public Library. I’m always on the lookout for new ways to explore the world of crafting, as well as how to make use of the different kinds of crafting resources we have available through the library.

Join me this summer as I review a variety of different books about crafting and creativity, both fiction and non-fiction,  all of which can be found through your local public library branch. I will also be trying my hand at a few of the projects published in a couple of the books, like from The Knitster: 25 Knitting Projects for the Modern World by Robbie Dulaney and Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery by Leanne Prain, and sharing my successes and failures through this blog. I hope you'll take the time to try some of them too.

So, what do you like to make in your spare time? Let me know. :)
