Art of the Book:
Democratic Multiples and Woven Structures
Join us for a unique, intimate, and skill-based workshop focusing on the basics of book binding.
Talented book artist Lara Henderson joins us in Connecticut for a one-day workshop teaching you how to create various woven and folded book structures. Lara will also share insights on social justice and ways to reach your community.
No previous knowledge of book binding is required. We will provide all the materials you need to learn; just bring your eager hands! All registered attendees will walk away having learned at least three unique book-binding techniques, as well as a set of tools to keep.
This is a workshop you do not want to miss—seating is extremely limited, so secure your spot and register now!
