A classic hit!

Bowman Library was thrilled to host the first of the It’s Classic workshops last Saturday.

Local classics expert, Tashi Treadway, presented an engaging and hands on session that focused on the story of Athena and Arachne.

Weaving#2AdviceTwenty middle school students joined Tashi and her three assistants for an afternoon of storytelling, weaving and greek vase painting. Tashi even brought her own weaving loom for the students to use.
