Books as Art: Giving a second life to discarded books - NEFLIN HQ (02/08/23)

Don't throw away those books you've
weeded from your collection!

Let's turn them into art masterpieces!

Some books are beyond repair and inevitably need to be discarded. This workshop will teach you how to re-use these printed materials and turn them into display and programs ideas for your library. It is a hands-on workshop geared to library programing staff on a budget.

Some projects you will make:
  • Collage techniques
  • Book page folding
  • Photography
  • Poetry 
Bring some books for us to play with!
