Upcycle with an Altered Books Workshop at the Library
The Friends of the Library present a new kind of book club: An Altered Book Workshop.
The workshop is slated for Tuesday, February 19 and 26 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., unleash your inner artist and transform an unwanted book into a new, personalized Art Journal.
Altered books are a relatively new art form that is creating a buzz. An old book is transformed into something unique and beautiful as the book is cut, torn, collaged, painted, glued, stamped, ribboned and more.
It’s not recycling; it’s upcycling!
Helen Quinn, your guide on this creative journey, will present many techniques that can be applied to other projects as well.
The workshop is a Library fundraiser at a cost of $69 for both sessions, with all materials included.
