Foundry Art Centre Announces Metal Hinged Bookmaking Class With Acclaimed Contemporary Artist Renee Richetts

Acclaimed contemporary artist Renee Richetts is bringing her popular metal bookmaking workshop to the Foundry Art Centre from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm on Saturday, November 5, 2011.

Soda cans, food tins and repurposed metal are just a few types of materials Renee Richetts uses in her works of art. Workshop participants will hammer out these repurposed materials to create the pages of their original books through this bookmaking class, adding found objects and embellishments to personalize each student’s book.

The cost of the all-day Metal Hinged Bookmaking Class with Renee Richetts is $95 each for the general public, and $85 for Foundry Art Centre members.

This bookmaking workshop is appropriate for ages 16 and up. Seating for this special opportunity is limited, so advance reservations are recommended.

Contact Angela at the Foundry Art Centre at (636) 255-0270 or via email at [email protected] for more information or to reserve a space for the workshop class. Registration can also be completed online through the Foundry Art Centre’s website –
