Ashland library ‘Teen Crafternoon’: spool and book poetry

“Teen Crafternoon” continues its emphasis on upcycling with spool and book poetry, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. April 5 in the Ashland Branch Library’s teen department.

At Ephemeral Alchemy, Kelli Nina Perkins offers an explanation and displays several examples of thread spool poetry: “Take a vintage wooden spool and wind it with a strip of colored muslin. Add some collaged text you’ve cut from old books and turned into your random poem. Add some embroidery, a button, and a ribbon and roll it up into a little ‘book.’”

Ashland Branch Library is located at 410 Siskiyou Blvd. For more information about Teen Crafternoon, contact the teen department at 541-774-6985.
