When books reach a certain age or condition, many think the only place for them is the trash. But during the Huntington Library’s Altered Books Workshop, participants get a chance to turn these almost-trashed books into treasure. Taking place Thursday, November 5th at 6pm at the Huntington Library, the workshop is open to anyone wishing to create something new and fun out of old books.
No special skills are required and many supplies will be provided; however, participants should dress for the occasion (older clothes that can get stained, glued, or painted). Extra supplies, such as Xacto Knives, rulers, scissors, and other craft supplies are welcome. The program is welcome to anyone ages 15 years and up and is completely free to participants.
