Artist-at-Work Demonstrations

The Artist-at-Work program features an artist or group of artists who demonstrate their craft in a high-traffic area of the library. The artist performs two demonstrations in a one-month period, usually on Saturdays. One demonstration takes place at Central Library and one at a community library.

Blooming Paper

with Amanda Garbe

Saturday, October 13 from 1 pm - 3 pm
Grand River Stanley Park

Saturday, October 27 from 1 pm - 3 pm
Central Library

Join Amanda Garbe while she brings paper to life as four-foot tall flowers in full bloom.

Amanda has been experimenting with paper art for the past ten years: exploring the mediums of papier-mâché, shadow puppetry, and now, paper flowers. Refining her process and style through trial and error, she is ready to chat with you about how to experiment with paper and glue to create whimsical plants and flowers of your own.
