Join us to READ and Play together. When children engage with books, songs, and play, they develop communication skills, patience, empathy, and pre-reading skills which helps to build a lifelong love of reading. 

This program is geared toward children under age 5. All older and younger siblings as well as childcare groups are welcome to join.

Library programs are always free.

Transforming Metal Workshop

Transforming Metal Workshop

Meeting Room 115
Wednesday, Apr 24, 2024, 5:00pm to 7:30pm

Have you ever wondered how your favorite piece of jewelry was made?  Have you ever watched a metalsmith transform a piece of flat, ordinary metal into a beautiful object?  If so, you will really enjoy this, “hands on” workshop!

Members of the Wisconsin Metalsmiths will be on hand demonstrating their techniques and skills, and will teach you how to produce your own wearable item or useful object of art.  Try your hand at transforming sheets of metal into something special, using hammers, pliers, stamps, torches, and more.  Walk away from the workshop with something that is uniquely yours! 

No previous metalsmithing skills are necessary.  Everything will be provided for you to experience the magic of manipulating metal. 

The workshop is limited to 15 people so please register only if you are committed to attending. Registration opens April 10 at 10am. Participants must be age 15 and older and must sign a consent form provided the evening of the workshop. Participants under age 18 must be accompanied by a consenting adult. Closed-toed shoes are required, please tie back hair and avoid loose clothing. You are welcome to bring an apron if you wish to further protect your clothing.

If registration is full, please call the library to see about a wait list slot.

This event is generously funded by the Friends of Goodman South Library.
