Event Details

ToshWerKs Presents - Upcycled  Book Garden

Participants will select from 20+ different pre-drilled books, carefully deciding which cover designs or colors that inspire or speak to their personal aesthetic. They'll then have the opportunity to embellish their books with the colored ribbon or paint and then arrange a beautiful Succulent Mini Garden which will nestle in the pages to create a Vibrant, Fun & Sustainable piece of art! There are a multitude of different books and plants to choose from, and each of the different mini gardens will yield different outcomes but each one will be the product of its creators expression of self, and an exercise in sustainability. As with all our projects we will supply all materials (books, plants, misc tools, etc). SEATING LIMITED. REGISTRATION IS RECOMMENDED.

This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the University Heights Branch Library.
