Crafting Handmade Books

For everyone; children 10 and over are welcome with an adult.

Make time for a meditative experience of creativity, and take a collection of beautiful handmade objects home with you. In the first part of this inspired weekend, you make experimental watercolors with pigment, salt, and stencils to use on the covers of your books. Once your covers are done, you sew a variety of handmade books that can function as journals, sketchbooks, or gifts for friends.

By the end of the program, you have a set of colorful and uniquely bound books—and the know-how to make more. No experience necessary, just an open mind and the willingness to explore your own creativity.
