We are very excited to present a series of 4 week workshops full of mixed media, painting and book binding projects designed to inspire kids to read and cherish books as they make their very own!
Each student will receive one Behind the Legend Book, a series by Erin Peabody, that is theirs to keep. The book can be picked up at our local Astoria Bookshop located on 31-29 31st Street. This book will inspire their own book binding project.
Students will spend a couple classes painting, a couple classes assembling, the rest of the time will be spent personalizing the book with numerous multi-media techniques including weaving, sculpting, collaging and sewing. The lessons are very versatile as students can be shown many techniques depending on how they want to personalize their project, but special attention will be given to craftsmanship, thinking critically about measurement, color choices, embellishment, composition and design.
The class will end with our own book club/ tea party where students will share their own handmade books with their families and classmates.
