Saturday, April 7: Altered Books
An event connected to the “Nourishing the Inner Artist: Conversations about Art, Creativity, and Imagination” creativity forums series.
TIME: 1-3 p.m. LOCATION: Putney Public Library Central Library, 55 Main St, Putney, VT 05346
FEATURED ARTIST: Marsha Bard
Taking an old book, we will make a plan to create a new book with art papers, stamping and fussy cutting. Bring along an idea of a theme for your book — an old book (with a signature binding), and any small drawings, graphics, ribbons, buttons — whatever makes you happy. We will be removing many pages and gluing others together to create our new book. If you plan on attending and participating, please bring: an exacto knife, Elmer’s glue, small paint brush (for spreading the glue) if you have it, and any other materials you want to use in re-making your book!

More About Marsha:
Marsha Bard has had a lifetime adventure with art in many forms, from installation sculpture pieces, art dolls, fabric art, etc., but found so much joy in the paper arts. Marsha loves the idea of taking a book that someone would toss in the trash and recreate it as a piece of art that you want to display, or just taking a stack of papers and creating a new book that is one of a kind.
