Looking forward to LOLB workshops and exhibition

The LOLB exhibition officially opens at 10am on the 6th November and ends on the 23rd. It is open from 10am to 4pm Mon to Saturday and 11am to 4pm Sundays

During the show,The Library of Lost Books - book art workshops will take place in room 105 Library of Birmingham 

The 14th of November is The Big Art Day at The Library of Lost Books. Come and explore a range of workshops that use old books, recycled materials, pens, print and even typewriters to make your own book art.
Spend your lunchtime exploring collage techniques with London based artist Christina Mitrentse, or while away the afternoon making some beautiful and unusual Christmas decorations with award-winning artist Catherine Scriven. After work come and make your own zines with Postal Project founders Melanie Alexandrou and Jade Blood. The last session of the day offers you a chance to join Melanie and Jade at their mail station and make your own contribution to their Postal Project archive.

On the 20th of November you can come and work with Durham based artist Stephen Livingstone. Stephen’ exhibits widely in the UK and internationally; his books Moths and Moon, made of graphite and pulverised rock samples on discarded library books was commissioned by the British Library. Join Stephen to create collaged books inspired by the Lindisfarne Gospels.

Join us on the 23rd of November, last day of our exhibition at the Library of Birmingham as we celebrate with a wonderful screenprinting workshop.
