with paper artist Phiona Richards

Phiona Richards, book sculptor and paper artist, will share with you some of the secrets of art journaling that has become very popular over the past few years.  You will have the option of using an old and tired book or a brand new sketchbook. You will be shown how to use paint, ink, masking tape, collage, drawing, writing, doodling to create very personal pages for your very own journal.  No experience necessary, just a little curiosity, is all that is needed.

Places are limited and booking is essential. To book your place please contact Marion Sander, artsNK Visual Arts Development Coordinator, on 07887574138 or email marion.sander@litc.org.uk

This workshop is part of Taking pART – a new Arts & Health partnership project by artsNK and Transported which will be delivered as a taster programme of free integrated visual arts activities in the libraries of Boston and Spalding. The activities are funded by the Mental Health Promotion Fund through the Managed Care Network and Transported and are accessible to all members of the community with a special emphasis to integrate those experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues. The activities are designed to develop new skills, build lasting relationships and encourage mutual support in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Transported

Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme which aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities.  The programme is overseen by the Centre of Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln, and is funded by the Creative People and Places fund from Arts Council England.
