Books and Words: Bookbinding and Poetry Workshop
Tuesday, January 22, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PMFree
Interested in adding or expanding the literacy component of your teaching artistry? Join Candy Alexandra González (a Latinx paper-maker, print-maker, book artist and young poet) in this hands-on session for teaching artists who want to incorporate simple bookbinding and poetry writing into their teaching practice. The first part of the workshop will be spent making hand bound journals by using easy pamphlet stitch binding techniques. Then we will christen the journals through guided poetry writing exercises featuring collaborative writing and quick “word bank” poems. By the end of the workshop, you will walk away with the tools to share bookbinding and poetry writing in ways that are accessible to students with little to no experience in either art form. Artists in all disciplines are welcome.
