Workshop: Making Chapbooks

Federation of B.C. Writers Workshop
Making Chapbooks: Book Art with Mona Fertig
Sunday, November 18th, 1 to 5pm.

Registration deadline: November 10
Class size limited to 14 - register early!
Cost (includes materials): $75 for Fed members, $90 for non-members.
Location: Alliance for Arts & Culture,

Participants will create and produce four chapbooks, from simple chapbooks with a spine and French flaps to a more complex non-adhesive book art piece. These chapbooks can be used for self-publishing ideas, future limited editions, artist's books, journals or gifts for friends and family. No previous experience necessary but an ability to work with your hands an asset.

Paper, thread and needles supplied but participants will need to bring the following items to class: Exacto knife, scissors, glue stick, metal ruler, bone folder or letter-opener, self-healing cutting board or piece of thick cardboard to cut paper on.
