Join artists Helen Rousseau and Katriona Beales on a creative adventure inspired by the Library’s Artists Books Collection. Learn how to fold, cut and thread paper in new and interesting ways. Let your imagination run wild as you turn everyday materials into wearable artworks. Then take your wearable books for a walk around the Library and maybe even wear them home.
