get crafty at our spring show

We hope you are so inspired by the 50 makers at our spring show that you try making something yourself! And it’s possible to get started even before you get home — the make-it station by the front entrance will be staffed by creative folks all day long:

11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.: The fine folks of the Contemporary Arts Center are making nature-inspired paper crowns with dried flowers. They will also have materials to make felt flower pins, so consider your spring wardrobe updated!

2:30 to 6 p.m.: The crew from the Cincinnati Main Library’s MakerSpace will also have two projects on offer. The first one will be Make Your Own button: They’ll have supplies and button makers for you to design and make your own buttons, magnets or keychains. They will also have string art supplies for people to try making their initials with small blocks of wood, nails and string.
