Ever taken something painful and turned it into something soothing?

Date:  Saturday, April 8, 2017

Time:  9:30am – 4pm

Bring a box lunch and join us April 8 at the Figge Art Museum for Full Circle Project.


Participants will:

  1. Cut up those unappealing hospital gowns,

  2. Turn those gowns into pulp,

  3. Change the pulp into paper,

  4. Bind the paper into books, and

  5. Write in books so they become cherished journals.


This FREE class will be led by artist Dawn Wohlford – Metallo, Kathryn Anderson, St Ambrose University, and Ryan Collins, MidWest Writing Center.
