Each January, the downtown Camden Public Library answers the question “Why should the kids have all the fun?” with hands-on craft workshops for adults. Jumpstart January requests advance registration by calling the library at 236-3440. A $10 materials fee for each workshop will be collected at registration.

The first workshop in the series, Pysanky Eggs, is set for Thursday, Jan. 3, at 6 p.m. Pysanky eggs are a traditional Ukrainian craft using wax resist to trace intricate patterns onto eggs. The workshop will be conducted by Jim and Chris Sady. Participants will not only learn the techniques, but also will take home tools of their own so they can keep practicing.

The rest of Jumpstart January is as follows: feminist-themed arts and crafts drawn from Bonnie Burton’s book “Crafting with Feminism,” led by Lorain Murphy, Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m.; Sketching with Watercolor & Ink with Heather Davis, Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 6:30 p.m.; Sew Your Own Tote Bags with Amy Hand and Lindsay Pinchbeck, Thursday, Jan. 24, at 6 p.m.; The Art of the Letter with Rita Swidrowski, Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 6 p.m.; and Introduction to Social Partner Dance with Chris Sprague, Thursday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m.

The library is at 55 Main St./Route 1, with another entrance on Atlantic Avenue. For more information, visit librarycamden.org.
