Scraps to Books

Your easy guide to making lovely little books from cast-offs

Enjoying the discARTed concept of creating new items from recycled materials?

Join artist Maryann Sedivy to explore the art of bookmaking and create a handmade book utilizing cast-offs from the interior design industry and other materials that would otherwise be landfill bound – a project first attempted and enjoyed at the popular summertime Women’s Retreat!

What: “Scrap” Book-Making Workshop

When: Wednesday, March 20 – 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Where: The West Woods Nature Center

For the $12 fee, a wide variety of materials will be supplied for artists to use; however, participants may also choose to bring interesting papers, such recycled gift wrap, greeting cards, magazine photos and more, to use as unique embellishments to their artwork.

Registration is required for this program, which is wheelchair/stroller accessible and suitable for those ages 14 and older,  or call 440-286-9516. Call that number, too, with questions.
