TOMS RIVER – In honor of Native American Heritage Month, teens and ‘tweens can discover the time-honored ingenuity of harnessing harvested food for multiple uses in a special crafting program. “Ink from Acorn for Teens” will be offered at four Ocean County Library branches in November.
Debbie Hadley will discuss the technique of removing bitter tannins from foods to make them edible, and the making of pigments from tannins extracted from acorns, oak galls and other natural sources. Teens will create their own small batches of natural ink to take home.
Please register at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events to take part in this free program, recommended for young people aged 12 and up. For more information, visit any participating OCL branch or call (732) 349-6200.10-12-ink.pdf
