PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Book artist Sushmita Mazumdar guides students in an exploration of the many creative ways to work with paper and make personal storybooks by hand. In the first session, bookmaking styles from around the world are discussed, with an emphasis on Islamic, Japanese, and Himalayan traditions. Participants build and bind several books using standard bookmaking papers and thread as well as unusual materials such as manila folders and matchboxes.

The newly created books serve as inspiration for a second session of creative writing and art-making using calligraphy, collage, and other techniques. No previous experience needed.
