About this course

  • There are many books that go to landfill each year, so in this course will be using some of them to give them a second life (please choose books you do not want to read again and not current library books). 
  • Over the three weeks we look at and create some projects with old unwanted books and book pages.  we look at Stamping, Decoupage, and sculpture .  Also within the sessions we have time to talk at reflect on crafting with reused items.   

  • Learners will need to provide their own materials for the sessions; Old unwanted books – hardbacks and paperbacks, glue, are the main items 

What will learners achieve by the end of the course? 

  • At the end of the course learners will have an understanding of some the craft equipment available and have understanding which items are best for specific projects.  This course is great to try some difference crafts and using items they might have a home.  

What skills or knowledge do learners already need to have to attend the course? 

  • No specific skills are required – just a willingness to learn and take part
