On Tuesday, March 14, at 10 a.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will present another popular two-hour coloring workshop for adults. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.
“Our hectic lives color our view of the world. Wouldn't it be great if you could just spend a few unhurried hours with a coloring book?” said Jen Schulze, head of Adult Services. “Whether you color inside or outside the lines, coloring is a fun and relaxing activity that allows you to get your creative juices flowing without the need for any artistic talent.”
The coloring patterns the library will provide are geometric, intricate, abstract, and designed to appeal to adults. All other materials, as well as coffee and tea, will be provided.
The next coloring workshop will be Tuesday, April 11 14 at 10:00 a.m. The programs are free and open to the public. No need to register, just stop by and be prepared to have some fun.
Another creatively-oriented workshop will be held on Saturday, March 18 at 1:30 p.m. Spring Gardening Basics will be presented by Karen Camden, who has given many talks and classes at the library.
She will cover the entire gardening process including planning the garden, what to grow, what kind of soil gardeners have or need, and the right tools for the job. At the end of the class, there’ll be a question and answer session.
Camden is a frequent speaker at the library who gives computer classes and workshops on organizing, repurposing, gardening and sewing. She is the President of Camden Associates, a consulting firm that provides services in Communications and People Skills, Organizational Assessments and Clutter Control.
