Create miniature billboards that light up with your own special message or make a top hat, brooch or lapel pin at Maker Craft programs offered in February at the Creation Station at the La Quinta Library.
“Ant Man’s Billboards” on Saturday, February 4, offers all ages the opportunity to create a small lighted billboard with serious to funny messages or an advertisement for a made-up business or product.
On Thursday, February 9, a visit to Professor Verne’s corner will give you skills to make a mini top hat while at Miss Ada’s studio you can learn to make a clockwork brooch or lapel pen inspired by Steampunk literature.
The “Steampunk Haberdashery” is open to all ages but is recommended for 6 years and older. This program ties into the La Quinta Book Fest, February 6-11 at the La Quinta Library.
