The Dover Public Library has added a wonderful new database called Creativebug to its online offerings. Creativebug is a collection of more than 1000 video classes, free to library patrons with their borrower card number, covering a wide variety of creative topics. Classes range from 3 minutes to more than 6 hours long. Topics include: drawing, painting, doodling and journaling, lettering, printmaking and textiles, sewing, quilting, ceramics, paper crafts, book binding, cards and gift wrap, collage and decoupage, flowers, knitting, crochet, baking, cake decorating, canning and preserving, upholstering, furniture restoration, home décor, jewelry, holiday and parties, and kids’ crafts.
Creativebug's renowned instructors are top designers, artists, and leaders in their fields. Beginner to advanced classes are included. Each class specifies a list of materials needed, and shows the process step by step. There are also free downloadable patterns, templates, and recipes, and new classes are released every day!
Is there a technique you have always wanted to learn? Or are you just curious about how something is made? Creativebug will help you unlock your creativity. The Creativebug link can be found on the Learning and Research page of the library's website: library.dover.nh.gov/research, and DPL cardholders get unlimited access to all videos! Library cards are free to all Dover residents, to all students at any school in Dover, and to anyone who works in Dover (proper residency or work ID required).
