Are you looking for ways to expand your library’s makerspace offerings and appeal to the creative people in your community whose interests aren’t served by 3D printers or robots? Join Booklist and Cherry Lake Publishing for this free, hour-long webinar featuring Kristin Fontichiaro, clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Information, who will talk about the power and potential of fashion-centered making. Learn strategies for using inexpensive thrift store purchases as raw materials for custom maker creations. With simple instructions and inexpensive tools, your patrons and students can upcycle t-shirts into tote bags, infinity scarves, and costumes, create winter accessories from discarded fleece garments, add conductive thread to gloves so they can be used with smartphones, create custom t-shirt stencils with scrapbooking machines, and engineer garments that light up. Many of the examples come from Cherry Lake Publishing titles for middle-grade readers, Hacking Fashion: T-ShirtsHacking Fashion: Fleece (forthcoming), and e-Textiles. Moderated by Ilene Cooper, Booklist Books for Youth Senior Editor.
