"Can a Book Transform the World? Can a Book Transform a Life?” Sustainable Bookmaking Workshops at the PMA

Sunday, January 9, 2011
10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. OR 2:00–5:00 p.m.
Half-day workshops are offered. Register for one only.
Instructors: Book artists from the Philadelphia Center for the Book
Location: Education Studios I and II at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
Paid reservations required (contact the PMA to reserve)
$40 ($32 PMA members); includes Museum admission
Enrollment limited to 20 participants for each half-day workshop.

Learn to make handmade books using your own recycled material. Bring packaging of all kinds, leaflets, rubber stamps, and so on, and an inspiration, wish, or thought on how to transform the world (or even one life) to hand-letter as the text within. At the end of the workshop, we’ll visit the exhibition Michelangelo Pistoletto: Cittadellarte for a conversation about art and social transformation, using our handmade books as inspiration.
