What do you get when you combine an afternoon filled with arts and crafts? Well, you get Crafternoon, of course! The San Francisco Public Library kicks off this fun and free event Saturday at its Presidio Branch. To help you get crafty, Maura Madden, the co-host of New York Public Library's Crafternoon series and author of Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty with Your Friends All Year Long, will be leading the event. Crafters of all levels—and ages!—will learn how to make creative collage pieces and how to decoupage, which is basically a technique of decorating something with various cutouts. Supplies will be available, unless you'd like to take a whip at making a decoupage, then you should bring a box of any size to decorate. And to gather inspiration, the library will showcase an extensive selection of craft books on hand from its extensive collection. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Are you ready to take your crafting to the next level? If so, get the deets below.
When: Saturday, August 27, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Presidio Branch Library, Meeting Room, 3150 Sacramento Street (between Lyon and Baker streets); 415-355-2880.
