Imagine creating your very own handmade book inspired by materials, techniques and traditions that date back to ancient Chinese and Egyptian times! We will take a look at some of the earliest surviving inscriptions for idea development.  Students may choose a favorite proverb or write an original expression of truth, then illustrate the concept through a series of bound pages. The construction of these books will consist of natural and modern bookmaking materials, and could include parchment, leather, wood and even clay. Amazing lifetime keepsakes!

Camp fee includes $25.00 Supply fee.
