Transform plastic bags into art

ASHEBORO — Create beautiful art and useful objects from plastic bags in an Asheboro Public Library Community Craft & Learn event on Monday, April 24, from 4-6 p.m.


Join mixed media fiber artist and art educator Cassandra Liuzzo to learn how to transform single-use materials that would otherwise be thrown away. The project is inspired by compassionate work being carried out at local resource center Keaton’s Place, which is reusing plastic bags to make bedrolls for people experiencing homelessness.


All ages and abilities are welcome, and no registration is required. Participants are encouraged to bring their own crochet hooks and scissors to supplement those provided.


Liuzzo is founder of Shelf Life Art & Supply Co., a new and used art supply store in Greensboro. Her work has been exhibited in galleries such as the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro, the Catherine Smith Gallery in Boone and Brooklyn Fireproof in New York. She holds a bachelor of science in art education degree from Appalachian State University.


The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For more information, call 336-318-6804.
