Book-Making Made Simple! Kid-Friendly Book Arts for the Classroom
Book-making workshops for teachers/librarians of grades 2 and up

Classroom-tested, kid-approved!

Book-making is a wonderful way to promote literacy and creativity! Come learn how to make simple, low-mess books which kids love (e.g. ribbon-tied hard-covered accordions and books with wraparound covers), along with tips on how to teach your students to make them. Books can house poetry or writing activities, special projects or reports, sketches, class notes, journaling, timelines…the only limit is imagination. You will leave with an armload of books and ideas to make more.

Led by Stephanie Krause, book artist/teacher with extensive teaching experience in museums, schools, libraries, and privately.
