encouraging making

Bendigo Wool and Sheep Show 2017
 This photograph shows some of the action in one of the Woolcraft sheds at the Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show last week.  It was to encourage making (and give people a chance to sit down).  It really was an old blanket with which you could use the various items on the table to decorate - trying a new skill or participate in visible mending. I liked that it was simple, and was for experimenting with.  There was no overall design, so it was impossible to do the wrong thing with it.

Do you have things like this for adults in your library?
