Attention, makers and artists! During the month of January, we want you to craft a one-of-a-kind snowflake in the Creative Space and turn the Library into a winter wonderland for our winter reading program. Then, you can take your snowflake home at the beginning of February. To make your snowflake, you can 3D print it, use the Cricut Maker to cut it out from one of the 300 compatible materials, draw it in Adobe Illustrator and print it, laser engrave it on a piece of wood or paperboard with the DoBot Magician, or creatively use the other tools in the space. Try to make your finished product about 4 inches in length, height, and depth.
On Wednesday, January 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a member of our staff will be available in the Creative Space to help you use the equipment. If you have any questions about the training in Beanstack or the equipment, or if you want to bounce ideas off of an experienced maker, someone will be ready to talk with you during these hours without the need to set up an appointment!
All patrons must sign the liability waiver before starting this project, and anyone planning to use the 3D printer or DoBot must complete the relevant training badge in Beanstack. Please note: Patrons under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult in the Creative Space. However, as a part of this project, students under the age of 14 can send a 3D snowflake design, such as a Tinkercad drawing, to our staff to see it come to life as a 3D printed object!
