About Book Sculpture Workshop
Explore the world of ’Book Sculptures’ and rescue your second-hand books from landfill.
During this 3 hour workshop you will learn to transform old and discarded books into pieces of sculptural art. You will create your own unique treasure using simple techniques with surprising results.
Learn how to fold, tear, cut, glue, stamp, paint and stitch the pages of your chosen book. Decorate your creation with collage, pockets, small 3D objects, papier-mâché and other embellishments.
What you’ll need to bring: unwanted books of any kind in any condition and size! We also have a collection of books and magazines to upcycle if you don’t have any to reuse at home.
This workshop with Edinburgh paper and book artist Isabell Buenz offers a fun and relaxing experience for all abilities and anybody with an interest in upcycling and art.
