Bookbinding Workshop
Bookbinding Workshop

Arrowhead Center for the Arts | Grand Marais MN

Learn hand bookbinding as you help bind library copies of a new collection of student writings and art about the pandemic.

Cook County students responded to the pandemic last spring with artwork and writing, and their reactions were compiled into a book called SQUEEZED, COVID THE CONSTRICTOR.

Sharon Geisfeldt VanRuiswick will teach you how to do hand binding at an open (and free) workshop. If you’d like to participate in this workshop (all day from 10 to 4 or as a drop-in), please contact Ann Marie Mershon to sign up. 218-387-2245 or annmarie@boreal.org.

This project is funded by grants from the Karen Smaby Estate and the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation.
