Culture Club Master Class Series: Handmade Notebooks

We are delighted to announce that we are working with Camilla Fanning and, in the future more artists, to develop a series of arts and crafts workshops. In the latest event, Camilla will facilitate a class on the creation of your own handmade notebook.

Participants will learn how to make from scratch simple handmade notebooks, using simple methods and a variety of materials.  You will learn how to stitch pages together to make a notebook with a cover. Decorative methods will also be explored. The notebook is ideal for a personalised memento or gifts.

The Handmade Notebooks class will cost €60 to include materials, completed artwork and light refreshments. Please email, phone (01 905 6072/5) or message via Facebook or Twitter to register your interest for this event or our projected events. 

Keep an eye on the events page for details of further classes in the series.  

For further information from Camilla Fanning:

Payment may be made in person via Liberties Upstairs Bookshop (Regret no card facilities). Booking is essential as Camilla needs to be sure of numbers in advance for her planning and as places are limited.

Culture Club: Paper Art Master Class

After the success of our February class, the Culture Club will host another Master Class with artist Camilla Fanning. Camilla will be facilitating a specialised workshop, looking at the potential for using up-cycled and found materials, based on using cut-out, assemblage and collage techniques. The cost of €60 includes all materials, artwork to take home and light refreshments. Payment is via the bookshop (cash or cheque please, regret no cards).

In this workshop, we will look at the possibilities of using a variety of rescued and found materials that can be collaged and combined. We will learn to arrange and layer colours and textures to embellish your work. We will use layers & textures of fabrics, papers, jewellery and buttons, custom made papers, old letters, maps and photos, tiny found objects and stitching. Do you have something at home you would like to incorporate - maybe from a special event? Bring these with you and they can become part of your design too!
