If you made a New Year’s resolution to learn a new creative skill or to explore your artistic side, then look no further than your library. The Somerset County Library System of New Jersey (SCLSNJ) now offers Creativebug, an online learning platform for arts and crafts workshop and technique videos.
The crafty resource has over 1000 tutorials instructed by industry experts who have been featured in publications such as “Vogue,” “Martha Stewart Living,” and “O Magazine.” Library customers can discover their creative side through painting, knitting, screen printing, and much more.
“Once you set up an account, you can learn from anywhere using any device,” said Linda Tripp, SCLSNJ collection development librarian. “You can stop and start videos or even repeat them – it’s all at your own pace. We anticipate the classes, especially those on art, sewing, quilting, and cake decorating, to be as popular with our patrons as our print items.”
