Project HOPE hosts workshops at Putney Library

PUTNEY—Project HOPE facilitator Amber Paris will offer two free, open-materials, page-making workshops at the Putney Public Library in February.

Paris has initiated project HOPE’s “Community Book of Hope” at the Library as a collaborative, community effort. Artists and writers of all ages are invited to give work created around the prompt: “hope is...” which will be collectively hand-bound into a book that will remain at the Library.

Workshop dates are Monday, Feb. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 24, from noon to 2 p.m.

For more information about project HOPE and the Community Book of Hope, visit Paris’ website at or email her at

Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St. These events are free and open to the public.
