Library hosts monthly ‘Craft Masters’ program for adults

Brown sugar scrub was the craft in October

LANSING, Ill. (October 18, 2023) – The Lansing Public Library showed attendees how to make brown sugar scrub for the skin at their monthly craft workshop on October 13 from 1 – 2 p.m. The free event took place in the library’s community room.

This month’s workshop consisted of making brown sugar scrub for skin exfoliation. Attendees used brown sugar, olive oil, vanilla extract, and honey to make the scrub from scratch.

The event was open to the public, but attendees were required to register for the workshop in advance due to limited seating.

The monthly craft workshops were previously called “DIY Crafts”, but organizers have recently decided to change the name to “Craft Masters.”

The library has reimagined their craft master’s classes by offering a range of easy to difficult level crafts, said organizers.

“People will have a choice to [choose] between an easy craft or something a little more challenging,” said Andrew Harootunian, Adult Outreach Coordinator at the Lansing Public Library.

The workshops are targeted at adults over 18 years old, but the classes are mainly attended by seniors.

“The craft classes are really good for the elderly, for their hand [mobility] and their ability to create on their own,” said Harootunian. “It gives them an outlet to use their hands [in which] they may [rarely] use anymore.”

For more information on the library’s upcoming events, visit The Lansing Public Library is located at 2750 Indiana Avenue.
