Upcoming “Altered Books” Workshop

Here’s a chance to love books in altogether different way:  use them to create your own story.  “Altered Books” is an art form that uses books as your easel to draw, paint, and collage old, castoff hardback books into new works of art. 

The workshop  is Saturday, August 20, from 10:00 a.m. until noon, and is led by accomplished collage artist Ciara Meyer.  It’s for adults over 18, and is free of charge.

Please do call to pre-register at 755-0760.  No previous experience necessary!
