June 6 – June 10th
Instructor: Marissa Sondo

7.5 CTLE hours and 1/2 in-service credit
2  Face to Face Meetings (6/6 and 6/10)

Students are drawn to making books, because they are compact, personal and portable. This class will show different book making techniques that students can create as a class, but also independently to help foster a love of writing. The course will touch upon simple forms such as postcards and simple fold books and also move into accordion and simple bound books. In addition teachers will be shown how to use some other art materials that are classroom friendly. Teachers will have time to also create and make sample to bring back to the room with them.

This workshop requires 7 participants to run.
