The next hands-on folkart workshop at the Grassroots Art Center in Lucas features a classic animated toy, the jumping jack.
Nearly everyone has “pulled the string” to make these clowns or jesters flail their arms and legs, but the same simple mechanism can be adapted to produce different actions and create your own special toy. The workshop will be from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday evening, August 8. Sign up at the Grassroots Art Center or call 785 525-6118 to register. Class size is limited.
