A 'Take a Break' on Thursday Afternoon Program...
Library staff member, author, and our very own Renaissance guy, Phil Carr, today led an informational forum on the history of beads and beading and the place of each in world cultures. Phil and library staff member, Fran Connelly, also displayed a variety of unique beaded necklaces, collected during their travels.
The forum was followed by a hands-on beading workshop that welcomed experienced and budding beaders of all ages. Participants were introduced to beading tools; learned from others, and made/took home their own creation.
