Learn the basics of bookmaking by creating one structure called a “Keepsake Book” from start to finish in a two hour workshop with artist, Amee J. Pollack. Learn how to bind a book cover, and think about how image, text, structure work together to convey meaning and or tell a story. The workshop is limited to 20 participants. The workshop is for adults and for children 8 years and up. Materials will be provided for one book per participant. Feel free to bring any rubber stamps or collage materials to populate your book. Sponsored by the Highland Park Arts Commission and the Highland Park Public Library.
