WHAT IS A CRAFTERNOON? Most Tuesdays of the month, at Noon, there is an opportunity for adults to participate in an arts and crafts class being held at the Aquadome Recreation Center. Classes are held in a leisurely and laid back setting. Participants are led by an instructor who gives an example of the craft design, but who also encourages the individual to add their own personal ideas and touches to the finished product.
Crafting has many rewards such as self-expression and decision making. It teaches hand and eye coordination, motor skills and in a group setting like a Crafternoon, it offers relaxation and socialization for those who might otherwise just sit at home. Crafting is a good way to relax and enjoy the fellowship of other crafters, all the while, creating a work of art with their hands.
There are a wide variety of craft classes offered through the Aquadome Crafternoon Program. Examples are mesh wreaths, jewelry classes, and recycled projects such as using wooden pallets for wall art or plastic shopping bags converted to crocheted tote bags. These projects are suitable for the novice as well as the more experienced crafter. This group is about having FUN!         
Fees for the Crafternoon classes vary depending on the activity, and some classes are offered free. Individuals may be required to bring some items such as sharp scissors, glue gun, glue sticks, rulers or measuring tapes. A supply list will be provided for the activity as needed.
If you would like more information concerning the next Crafternoon, contact the Aquadome Recreation Center at 256-341-4950 or email Rochelle Darnell at rdarnell@decatur-al.gov. You can also check the Aquadome Lunch Bunch schedule of events to see the latest Crafternoon schedule.
