Description

Workshop

What can making books do for your students? Motivate them to learn, inspire them to write, and give them the joy of creation. Making books is adaptable, flexible, and fun. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll make six different kinds of books using recycled materials. You’ll learn how to use them across the curriculum and adapt them for all levels. The emphasis is on ease of construction, simplicity of materials, and a free-spirited approach to the process—no rulers allowed!
