Image result for card makingToday is the last of the three Paper Crafting/Card Making Workshops offered by Alicia Vicelette of "Inked Edge Paper Art."  

The instructor, who teaches classes in most of the libraries in the Mercer County Library system and the Cranbury Library as well as Mercer County Community College, Princeton Adult School, South Brunswick Adult Ed and many area senior centers says: "I have been addicted to card making for 23 years and have a passion for teaching others to create cards using a variety of mediums.  I have taught all levels of card making from beginner to advanced for over 18 years. Teaching the different techniques for card making has brought me joy as I transform paper into an art form."

The cost of this one-hour workshops is $5.00 per student which includes materials to create one card at each class.  The fee has been reduced from $8.00 per class to $5.00; the Friends of the Library will subsidize the cost of this workshop.  

Seating is limited; Adults only.  Please plan to arrive 5 minutes before the start of class so that the program can start on time.  Registration and pre-payment of $5.00 (cash or check made payable to The Friends of the South Brunswick Library) for each class is required at the Information Desk until 5:00 p.m. the day before the class.
