The Rare Book & Manuscript Library is teaming up with the Ricker Library and Champaign Public Library for a virtual crafty event! Interested in learning about medieval manuscripts? In this class, we'll go over what a medieval manuscript is and how they are created. This includes talking about making parchment, ink, and quills, as well as a calligraphy lesson. Crafters of all skill levels are welcome, materials are limited, so please act quickly if you're interested!
- Registration opens October 1 at 9:00 am through CPL's website. Registration is required.
- Craft kits including a cut quill pen and pot of ink are available for pickup at Champaign Public Library starting October 1 at 9:00am, and are first come-first served while supplies last. (*Please note: kits are not available for pickup in RBML or Ricker, only at CPL.)
- The Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants a minimum of 24 hours prior to the event.
Crafty Adults events are recorded and available to view on the library's YouTube channel. Most webinars are available to view within 72 hours from the live webinar.
