Handmade Bookmaking


Come to an inspiring 3 part workshop led by a mixed media artist, Shari Seltzer. Learn the basic book arts folding and simple sewing/binding skills. Create your own handmade book inside a cigar box to tell a story. Use family photographs and embellish personal ephemera. Incorporate minor transient documents of everyday life to enrich the visual narrative in handmade artist books. Participants are encouraged to collect some personal bits of ephemera. Bring maps, letters, cancelled stamps, old photos of long lost family members (photo copies...not originals), programs, brochures, sheet music, newspaper clippings, book pages, advertisements, trading cards, catalogs, greeting cards, postcards, tags, bit of packaging, ticket stubs and even produce stickers. There are no limits!
