A book can be a work of art! Come explore the possibilities and create your own artist book. In this week-long workshop we will learn the basic techniques and tools of bookmaking while creating our own accordion books. We will also look at concepts of narrative art and how to develop visual language through our books. This is a great introduction to the art of bookmaking! All materials and supplies are included in the price, but participants are encouraged to bring paper, fabric, or other inspiring materials.

The class dates for this workshop are May 7th through May 11th from 9:30am-11:30am each day.
