Don't miss the third annual Book Paper Scissors Artists' Book Fair at the Parkway Central Library on Saturday, December 5, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.—it's free and open to the public! This festive event features prints, artists' books, handmade paper, zines, origami, blank books, paper sculpture, and jewelry for sale by more than 30 artists. If it's paper-based art, it's here! Come and buy, or just be inspired! You will find many affordable and interesting gifts for everyone on your holiday gift list, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Free Library.
During the event, you can also learn to make a pochoir holiday card for a special someone with book artists Kay Healy and Greg Pizzoli. Pochoir, a French stenciling technique, was often used to color prints and books, especially in the early 1900s. Each participant will learn the technique and create their own handmade pochoir greeting. The kid-friendly (age 5 and up) workshops will be held at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. in the Story Hour Room in the Children's Department on the ground floor.
See you there!
