Start a creative journey – Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library

Creativebug (free with your library card) recently added Learning Journeys to your amazing options for artsy crafty projects! You already had the ability to learn cool stuff by randomly selecting and watching Creativebug video classes from artists and experts. Now, if you like a more organized approach to your creative adventures, Learning Journeys help you master new skills and guide you along a clear path.

In each journey you follow a series of classes that build upon each other. You’ll gain confidence in your new skill and complete projects along the way. The journeys give you a progress bar to track where you are, reminders and encouragement, and even downloadable certificates of completion. Heck yes, hang those certificates proudly on your fridge or office wall (gold stars for adults)!

Choose your own adventure

Right now Creativebug has seven journeys to choose from. I’m sure they will continually add journeys so check back regularly. Here are your options right now:

  • crochet hook and colorful granny squaresPatchwork quilting
  • Kids crafting
  • Intro to Cricut
  • The art of bookmaking
  • Crochet 101
  • Garment sewing
  • Quilting 101

Use library Cricut

We have a Cricut Explore 3 in the Level 2 Tech Center’s Digital Art Studio. After an orientation training you can reserve time to use the Cricut anytime the library is open.

As the library’s communications editor Ginger helps spread the word about all the amazing library resources, services and staff. She loves reading fiction and is working to keep her To Be Read list under 100. Ginger is also a volunteer at Helping Hands Humane Society.
