Design-A-Plate Information

When is Design-A-Plate?

Our 33rd annual Design-A-Plate workshop will be held on Monday November 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is an early release day for WSESU.

 

How does Design-A-Plate work?

Children and adults come to the library and draw on a special piece of paper using the provided markers. The special papers are sent away to the Makit factory where they are molded into a plate or bowl. The plate and bowls arrive back at the library and will be ready for pickup in mid-December.

 

What age is Design-A-Plate for?

Design-a-Plate is great for children of all ages and a fun measure of your child’s changes through the years. It’s fun for adults too!

 

What is the cost for Design-A-Plate?

This year, the cost is $6.00 per item for both plates and bowls. The amount covers the processing cost of each item. The $6.00 is a reduced rate since we place such a large order. We accept cash and checks made out to Brooks Memorial Library.

 

Do I need to register my child?

No. Just come to the library between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Monday November 10.

 

Can I bring in a picture I drew at home?

No. All drawings must be done on the special paper provided at the workshop. The paper is molded into the plate or bowl therefore only the special paper can be used.

 

When will I get my plate or bowl?

Plates and bowls are expected to be available for pick up in the Children’s Room by December 13. Since the plates and bowls are sent away to be process we cannot guarantee when they will arrive but past experience shows processing and shipping time is approximately one month.

 

Will you call me when my plate or bowl is ready?

No. You are welcome to call the Children’s Room at 254-5290 ext 110 to check if the plates and bowls are ready for pick up but due to the large number of participants we do not call everyone when the plates and bowls arrive. If you haven’t picked up your plate or bowl after an extended period of time, you will receive one courtesy call to remind you.
