A NEW BOOKARTS GROUP in North West This group was set up by a founder member of Mbag who moved to Liverpool. The group meets regularly on the first Saturday of the month, from 10. 30 to 1. 30 in Liverpool Central Library in one of the 4th floor meeting rooms. (Please ask at reception as occasionally we move rooms) The group is for anyone interested in book arts and everyone, whether a beginner or established artist, is very welcome. We have a regular programme of making and learning planned for next year. The group asks for a £4 donation to cover room hire and the library has a cafe for hot drinks and food if needed.
