October DIY Workshop:
We brought the art of book making to the women at Lydia’s House, St. Patrick Center, and the Center for Women in Transition this month. Each woman crafted and personalized a journal from a salvaged hardback book to hold her thoughts, notes, and to-do lists. Not only did the women get to design a notebook customized to their needs, they got to decorate the book with found images.
Our artists are also taught the women to make homemade glue from flour, sugar, water, and vinegar. We went DIY all-the-way this month and as usual were totally impressed with the beautiful creations from the women!
