Do you find yourself always on the hunt for a new notebook to scribble your thoughts, feelings, poems, and shopping lists in? Why not try your hand at crafting your very own set of books — save some money AND the environment at the same time by using reclaimed materials!
Join Creative Reuse teaching artist Deanna Baringer for a fun night of demonstrations and hands-on making! In this class we will be transforming reclaimed greeting cards and other reclaimed materials into one-of-a-kind notebooks, using three different non-adhesive binding styles! We will have lots of surprising materials on hand for you to explore, and if you have a favorite greeting card at home that you'd like to repurpose, bring it with you and Deanna will help you turn into a perfectly personalized notebook.
All supplies and tools are provided, and are completely reclaimed materials from Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse. We'll also have some yummy snacks and drinks to share, and feel free to BYOB!
Participant age: Children aged 12-16 are welcome to attend with their guardians (both need a ticket). Some exceptions for focused and creative children 8+ can be made — just email us at [email protected]
beforehand to discuss. Thanks!
