How can we create a private visual reminder of what inspires us? Or, how can we invite others to experience our world and share how we see? This workshop explores the blending of book as art with an introduction to easy bookmaking skills. Participants will learn bookmaking basics by creating a fully functional, tiny book customized from various materials. All participants will create a uniquely personal book they can take with them as a personal token for uplifting encouragement or to share with others at the end of the workshop.
A basic materials list will be sent to participants that will include easy to find recycled materials, a basic adhesive such as Elmer’s Glue, thin cardboard, string, scissors, markers, pencils, paints, and other easy to find optional materials.
