Saturday, February 7th 2015 - 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library
18 Church St

The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library will host library staff member and local visual artist Susan Heggestad as she leads an altered book workshop on Saturday, February 7th from 2 – 4 pm.
We all love to read and learn from books, but we can take our passion for books one step further— any book, old or new, can become an altered book! The transformation can involve any number of interventions—from adding materials to erasing and cutting out bits of the original. The degree of alteration can be minimal, or it can be a total obliteration of what was there.
We will investigate the work of several prominent book artists, and spend some time experimenting! Used books, a selection of basic cutting, gluing, and drawing tools will be provided.
Registration is required. Please stop by our Circulation Desk, or call the library at 677-7060.
Susan is a professional studio and teaching artist, residing in Vermillion. She specializes in printmaking, bookmaking, sculpture, and papermaking.
The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street in Vermillion. For more information call the Library at 605-677-7060.
