For an upcoming online class on alchemy and aromatherapy, Florian Birkmayer is putting together a kit of tiny samples of essential oils, along with a few other objects.

Book Arts (PRBK 165L, 21247, 01), August 24-December 7, 2017 (Thursdays), Room 708, 9 am to 2 pm, Santa Fe Community College Art and Design Department.
Books have been used by humans for more than 4,000 years. Our electronic tablet is just another form of the original clay tablet used in ancient cultures for recording trade. Scrolls, tablets, dimensional covers, or sculptural forms all describe books for art. In this class with Marci Easterbrook you’ll use traditional and contemporary methods of binding, casting, and repurposing of materials to create books that stretch your learning and skills in completely new ways. Discover Book Arts and “reading a book” will never be the same.

The Albuquerque Modern Quilt Guild’s 3rd annual De-Stash Sale will be 9 am to 1 pm on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the Jewish Community Center, 5520 Wyoming Boulevard NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Don’t let the name fool you–there will be paper and other art supplies there, too.
More information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learn to transform fiber into beautiful textured paper, then “shape space” creating a 3D form exploring the elements of sculpture — form, space, line, texture, light, color and time. This paper can also be used with book arts, dying and painting techniques. During the six week course we will use flax, abaca and kozo fibers along with inclusions such as rusted metal, yarn, string, wire and plant material.
September 21 – October 26, 2017
Thursdays, 2-4 pm
