Papercraft workshop

I facilitated the first workshop with the knit and natter group in Dunmanway library, West Cork. They were a very welcoming and lively bunch who were open to being creative with the brief!

The library had some old books which were due to be disposed of soon and the librarians were keen for us to use them to create something new.

I decided to facilitate the group to make some 3D book sculptures. I demonstrated a few simple designs and encouraged ways in which they could be creative with different combinations of those designs or their own thoughts.

It was fun and relaxed with tea and biscuits provided by the lovely librarian.

The knitting group has created some amazing projects in the past. They knit a scale model of the GPO in Dublin to commemorate the Centenery of the Easter Rising. Article from the Irish Times
