February's Project: Altered Book

Cut, glue, paint, and collage in a discarded book. Not for the faint of heart, we'll practice some basic altered book skills and take a look at CreativeBug's Altered Book Daily Challenge program.

The first 40 participants to register by February 12 will receive the project kit. Register after all slots are taken/February 12 and source your own materials, or just sit in and get a better idea of what the altered book process looks like!

Project kits will be available for pick-up beginning Thursday, 2/18-Monday, 2/22. Please make sure you indicate your preferred library branch when registering.

Project Kit:

  • Book
  • Gesso
  • Acrylic Paint (red, yellow, blue)
  • Paintbrush
  • Collage papers

You will need to provide:

  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • water
  • plastic lid (yogurt, cottage cheese, etc) or paper plate for mixing paint
  • black marker/Sharpie

Get creative and join others to learn how to make stuff! Our monthly project will feature a variety of projects and tools, including recycled crafts, sewing and basic mending, 3D design, fiber arts, paper-making, stamp-carving, watercolor, embroidery, cooking, baking, painting, and more!

Projects are suitable for older teens and adults. No experience is necessary. See the monthly program description to learn about that month's project and the tools you'll need to create along with us
