Doorways and Designs – A Small Library of Big Ideas
This autumn The Eloquent Fold (artists Carole Miles and Phiona Richards) will be back in Lincolnshire, hosting book / print making sessions at Boston, Long Sutton and Spalding libraries for one morning or afternoon over the course of four weeks per library. The Eloquent Fold love books; seeing them as a doorway to knowledge, an escape to adventure, and pathway to new horizons. The workshop theme has been inspired by Transported’s ongoing project Open Book, a partnership with local libraries.
Book Making Sessions
During the workshops, participants will use images of doors, letter boxes, door knockers, door furniture etc, all of which may been seen and passed in their daily lives, as a framework for the contents of their books. It will be an opportunity to collect information about what, how and why people need or want to be creative in the future.
Participants will experiment with printmaking, drawing, photography, calligraphy, stitching, personal memorabilia, collage, and paper engineering to make their Big Ideas books. Each person will have a book to keep and a book to fill and leave with the Small Library of Big Ideas.
The sessions are open to all age groups and abilities; they will be fun, friendly and free. Come and add your book of ideas to our Small Library and help shape arts ideas for the future!
