Altered Books program a hit
This past Saturday, March 21, we held a workshop on making altered books. Eleven adults attended, and they appear to have had a great time. We had set aside a big stack of miscellaneous used books and magazines for the group to work on (items that weren’t likely to sell–faded and torn children’s picture books and old textbooks, for example).
The presenter, Noa Baron, and her assistant, Celia Holm, both Austin Public Library staff members, report that the group dug into the old books with scissors, markers, and glue (and gusto), and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Some of the books were collaged; others were hung with strings, and others had their pages frizzed.
We hope to hold another altered books workshop soon, possibly on a Saturday in April. Watch this space for more info.
