LIBROS is New Mexico’s Book Arts Guild offering a variety of inspiration for both traditional and experimental artist’s books. We hold regular meetings on the 1st Saturday of the month, as well as annual and special exhibits.
We welcome new members and guests – please see our Calendar page a full list of upcoming meetings.
We will assemble the annual collaborative book during this meeting.
Learn this fun and easy technique for assembling paper bags to make a handy journal that can then be filled with paint, collage, stenciling, writing, etc. Annie will have a completed sample to display but the project will mainly deal with assembling the journal. You may have time after assembling the journal to start on the decorative aspect of it. Small paper bags will be furnished and after the meeting you can then go on to use many different sized bags and let your imagination run wild.

Don’t leave home without your bookbinding kit! Remember that many of our meetings are “hands-on” and the best way to learn new techniques is to try them yourself!
