ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On Dec. 14, the downtown branch of the Ann Arbor District Library will turn into a holiday craft expo for independent arts and crafts.

From 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., the Tiny Expo Indie Art & Craft Fair will host over 45 independent artists and crafters in the lobby of the downtown Ann Arbor library.

Throughout the day, library patrons will have the opportunity to browse and shop goods from artists like Paloma Nunez-Regueiro, Debbie Carlos and David Zinn. Tiny Expo vendor arts and crafts will range from photography, jewelry and fabrics to stuffed toys, woodworking and crocheted critters.

From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. there will also be hands-on art experiences including screen printing with Modati Studios, making winter hat ornaments and tactfully tearing tissue paper for stained glass windows.
