The first Notts Book Arts Festival in September/October 2023 gave opportunity to discover the magic of book arts through our programme of book art art exhibitions, competitions and workshops, this year in Wollaton. Young people were invited to submit their artwork to a student competition, we held an exhibition in Wollaton public library and a community workshop, and a fair on the 8th of October, all free to attend and participate and enjoy.
