Book Arts Program

Learn the Art of Bookmaking

Books are more than mere words on paper. They move and inspire us. Using your imagination and a few simple materials—scissors, glue, and decorative paper scraps—create a hardcover book that is as unique as you are. Led by noted artist and bookmaker Joan Machinchick and held on four consecutive Saturdays, this hands-on workshop explores the wondrous art of bookmaking. Share ideas, talk books, and have fun. No experience is needed.

Saturdays, October 7, 14, 21 & 28
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
St. John’s College, Mellon Hall
