Cranky making with Lotus Education and Arts Foundation
Winter is the perfect time to share or listen to stories. Come make puppets, storybooks, and other crafts that tell a story. Special guests from the Lotus Education and Arts Foundation will teach cranky making (storytelling scrolls) and the Bloomington Storytellers Guild will share some winter themed stories.
