Give an old sweater a new purpose in Holiday Craft event

Santa SweaterAdd to the holiday experience with Norman Public Library Central and its Holiday Craft Workshop, set for 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15 in the Lowry Room. The program was moved back a week from the original date due to the threat of poor weather.

Ages 18 and up will tackle a repurposing project, taking old sweaters or cardigans and transforming them into various types of holiday décor. Participants will be making a table-top tree, garland and several ornaments.

Donated, clean sweaters will be available along with other supplies including scissors, although participants are encouraged to bring their own scissors if they are more comfortable to use.

Participants also will get to take home directions so they can create more of the decorations with friends and family.

Registration in advance is required to participate.
