Create Art from Old Books

Join artist Patricia Powers in her Churchtown studio to create works of art out of old books rescued from the Claverack Library book sale. Appropriate for adults and teens.

Eight workshops, scheduled every Tuesday & Saturday July 10-Aug 4
3:00-6:00 PM
Attend some or all sessions! 
Workshops are free, but a $10 materials fee (for the series, not per session) is requested.

Patricia will provide books, guidance, fabric, ribbons, ideas, glue, paint, images, tools, inspiration, and instruction in the use of materials both familiar and unfamiliar. Select a book or two and turn it into something else, make new endpapers, repair the binding, recover it, turn it into a scrapbook, a photo album, a box, a doorstop, a sketchbook, a sculpture, a vehicle for your flights of fancy and wildest imagination.

Please sign up at the library, by phone at 518 851-7120, or email
We would like to know how many folks to expect so that we can provide the exact address of the studio, and so that we can reach you if necessary.
