Book Making with Jen Swan

December 2013 mini-session
11:00 – 12:00
ages 10+

In this study group, Jen Swan (art instructor from the Worcester Art Museum, Think Tank, and more) will guide students in creating their own blank journals from start to finish, using traditional hand-done book-binding methods.

There are may different ways to hand-bind books. Jen will choose the method that works best for the age group signed up for the class. Jen is excellent at differentiating multi-age groups. The above age is a guideline, though younger students may need a parent or helper for some parts of the assembly.

Designed for children who can:

  • work independently on assigned tasks
  • use age-appropriate motor control to assemble books
  • listen respectfully and follow directions

Materials fee = $15 per child to be collected by LACI staff and given to Jen on the first day of the study group

There will also be a small outside instructor surcharge of $5 paid to LACI.
