UPCOMING EVENTS

The Eloquent Fold - Book of Days Project 



The Book of Days is a project funded by the Northampton Community Foundation David Laing Family Fund and run by artists Carole Miles and Phiona Richards both of whom love books; print stitch; gathering and creating stories. 

The project will run over four weeks, on a Thursday in Roade Library and on a Friday in Deanshanger Library from 3.00pm to 5.00pm. The sessions are free.

From learning how to make your own handmade book to print and journalling techniques you will begin to fill your own book with ideas such as key events in family life, career, village life, the gardening year, dreams for the future, dates in history that have impacted on the participant in some way. The Eloquent Fold hope that exploring days that have a personal significance to the maker and creating a hand made book will provide a warm, friendly space in which to support wellbeing and create new friendships.

There will be pages with pockets so small items can be stored ie photos, bus tickets, luggage labels etc

Each step of the way you will be guided by the artists. We look forward to welcoming you into the wonderful world of handmade journals! If making is not for you but you'd like to join us for the Brewing Up at the end of each session you will be very welcome!





Roade Library - Week One
3.00pm - 5.00pm

Phiona will show you how to make your first book, we are hoping there will be time to make a second one during the four weeks so you have one to take away with you. Carole will show you examples of other completed books and as a group we can discuss the contents of your own personal book. Time permitting you may even get chance to start a few pages or jot some ideas down.

If you would like to come along to this creative group please contact Allan Davies at Roade Library on 0300 126 1000 or alternatively send Carole and Phiona a message via Facebook

You have your book, you have some pages printed. Now Phiona and Carole will guide you through a variety of art journalling techniques to enhance your pages.

They'll be the opportunity to use rubber stamps, stencils, paints, ink pads and a lovely selection of coloured pencils and pens.

If you are new to the group there will be a book and pages available for you to work with so you don't feel too behind.

This is the last week of the project. If you haven't attended the other sessions you are welcome to come and join Carole and Phiona for a nice cuppa whilst having a taster of what the group have been up to during the past 3 weeks. Unfortunately, there won't be time to make a book but you will be able to make a few decorative postcards to take away with you.
