Valentine's Day Bookmaking Workshop
Join us for two and a half hours of fun and creative fellowship while creating a heart-shaped accordion book. We’ll start by folding and cutting the heart-shaped text block and add a heart-shaped cover. When the basic book is complete, we’ll collage its pages with decorative papers, which will become a colorful background for handwritten thoughts or poetry. We’ll use a variety of decorated papers, including some Asian papers, which are included in the workshop fee. You may bring poetry and photographs to add to your book pages.
