Get creative at Craft Corner

Are your creative juices threatening to spew forth like so much Red Zone liquefaction? Do you need an outlet for your inner artist?  Then break out your glue gun, stencils and sparkly bits and have a look at World Book’s Craft Corner! This newest online sensation has thousands of activities with easy, clear instructions, photographs and illustrations. These projects are suitable for a broad spectrum of hobbyists - from beginner to expert, for children and adults. Every craft also contains a list of materials for easy reference and can be printed, e-mailed, or saved in its entirety to your computer. You can learn to:

  • Make your own Victorian wreath;
  • Knit your own “Popcorn scarf”;
  • Stencil greeting cards;
  • Weave your own friendship bracelets;
  • Create your own costumes.

You can also share your projects by logging into the site by creating your own My Research account. Here you can enter the steps and images for the crafts you've made in four simple stages. You can then preview the project and save it to your account, where World Book may share it with the rest of the crafting community.

Access this catalyst of expression from home or in libraries through the Source or the catalogue record. Joy!
