Crafting event open to students, staff
By Jonah Unger
LCC is hosting an event called “Chill, Craft and Services on Wednesday, March 28 in the Cesar Chavez Learning Center, located in the Arts and Sciences Building.
The event will take place from 11:30 to 1 p.m. The event was previously postponed due to poor weather conditions.
This is a chance for people to get together and connect post-pandemic. The Arts and Sciences Division offices have hosted similar get-togethers in the past. The event was originally for employees after returning to campus after the pandemic.
“Some of the staff recommended expanding the event to include more employees and students,” A&S Project Coordinator Amy Park said. “We reached out to them (Cesar Chavez Learning Center) and suggested adding a service component.”
Organizers plan on decorating paper bags with encouraging messages and art on them. The bags that are made will go to LCC’s west campus and will be used for sack lunches.
“Our messages can encourage students who may need some motivation,” Park said.
No experience is needed for students, and those who are experienced crafters will be encouraged to share their knowledge. There have already been donations such as cardstock, stickers, crayons, yarn, crochet hooks and beads.
“We are encouraging attendees to bring their current craft project if they have one,” Park said. “And to bring some extra supplies if they have some.”
The event was planned before the tragedy that took place at MSU, but this event is a chance to be a positive experience for students. Along with the paper bag projects, students will also have the opportunity to create encouraging cards to share with others.
“We hope that coming together with employees and other students for a bit of fun will brighten people’s day,” Park said.
