Friday 29th May – Sunday 14th June 2015

This event was the first of its kind in the Workhouse Chapel and was huge success. It featured work for sale from word-paper-book-obsessed makers and artists. A series of workshops covering topics such as Papier Mache, Book Binding and Altered Books. The Library (No ‘Shhhhhhh-ing’ here!)  had a range of paper, word and book themed books! There were also take part activities that people could participate in for free as they sat with Rose (the Chapel owner) and had a cup of tea! Details of the exhibitors below.
