Creative Arts Workshop – Create a Secret Room Book with Kit Loney
Local artist, poet, and educator Kit Loney will offer instruction on the creation of an easy book structure with infinite “scope for the imagination” (to quote Anne of Green Gables). Participants will learn the basic folding and cutting technique to construct a book with a pop-out surprise “room” and then begin a personal exploration using collage, watercolor, color pencil, and optional embellishments of fabric, lace, stickers, feathers, etc. Participants are encouraged to bring any keepsake items they may want to incorporate into their book, such as magazine pictures, decorative papers, family photos, ephemera, or doodads. All other materials provided. Fee: $20. Registration opens on Nov. 1 and closes at 5 p.m. Nov. 18.
