Our Craftinatrix Trish Tilly held crafters in sway at our Tea Painting and Tea Cup Candlemaking workshop.

Last Saturday, the Fresh City Lounge at Central Library was buzzing with crafters on a mission -- to make some adorable candles and then create handpainted tags to go with them. One of the most interesting elements of the class is that the delicate paintings were made using steeped teas as the medium. And even though crafters were not relaxing over a cup of tea, a sense of tea-induced tranquility seemed to infuse the students.
Join us for this Fresh City Life My Branch craft on Saturday, April 23 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ross-University Hills Branch.
Pour simple paraffin based candles into charming teacups found in any thrift store. A great idea for Mother's Day or as a gift to yourself. Bring your own teacup, or choose from our limited supply. All other materials will be provided.
Fresh City Life My Branch has programs for the crafty adults out there as well as those of you with questions about downloading eBooks and eAudios and using DPL's databases.
Want to learn how to knit or improve your skills? Join the Sit 'n Knit group at the Bear Valley Branch on Tuesday, April 5 at 10:00 a.m. This is a group for both experienced knitters willing to share their knowledge and newbies wanting to increase their knitting know-how. Fiber hosts are Kathy Orth and Charlotte Updike.
Our beloved knitting teacher, Jani Fellows, is moving to Los Angeles to be near her family -- and Fresh City Life and all of our knitting students wish her a bon voyage!
Jani Fellows was there at the beginning of our knitting program. In the fall of 2004, before Fresh City Life had a name, when it was still just a pilot project, I put together our first knitting class to see what kind of response we'd get for fibers workshops. Thirty-five people came the first night and Jani was a bit surprised by the turn-out.
