Creative Bookmaking with Ellen Berrahmoun

Creative Bookmaking with Ellen Berrahmoun

Create a unique handmade book as a vessel to place your writing and personal imagery. We’ll use everyday craft, recycled, natural and household materials to construct several book forms that can be embellished with easy art techniques.

Participants in this online workshop will be invited to join the instructor in an interactive format.

Ellen will begin with making a simple book that uses paper, ribbon, string, or yarn, and scissors, and will then demonstrate additional book forms.

Adults, teens, children with adult supervisor.
