Inverkeithing Arts Initiative ran two workshops in November based on making new art from second hand books. These workshops were very well attended, and we think the people who took part came up with some fascinating works of art. The atmosphere in the Friary was very contemplative during these workshop sessions, as everyone, including the children, focused on their interpretations of the book -art techniques. Here are some of the creations:
We also made decorations with the second hand books, simply using jewellery wire and old books, and one of our participants kindly showed us all how to make tree and angel decorations from folded books. This was fascinating and very well received! Sharing creative skills is a great way to learn new skills and build communities.
