Contact Liz Bryant on 01993 704345 for possible availability.

Thursday 1st August to Saturday 3rd August

In this workshop we will use old discarded hard backed books as our raw material to rearrange and recycle them into functional and decorative objects. The books will be provided as part of the course. We will appreciate books in a uniquely different way. No experience is needed but you will be guided into making books into interesting containers, lamps, journals or portfolios. We will discover how to preserve a book cover for other uses, how to cut niches into books and to make paper flowers from the spare book pages. Come and have some creative fun!
There will be a materials charge of £6.
Discarded Library HEATHER HUNTER graduated from Oxford Brookes University after working and teaching in three dimensional crafts. Since then her focus has been on artists' books, which involves all forms of printing, binding and paper engineering. Her books have won prizes in the USA and the Birgit Skiold prize at the London Artists Book Fair 2007 for an altered book. Her unique books are now in the private collections and libraries throughout the world.
