Bookmaking for Kids – Winter 2022

GRADES K–3: Have fun with friends making a variety of hand-folded books using colorful paper and embellishments. Students will learn simple accordion and pamphlet folds with pockets, as well as share creative ideas for using their books to start the creative writing process. Students are encouraged to bring from home items that they would like to use to embellish their books (anything flat like paper, stickers, ribbons, etc.) We will provide paper, string, sewing materials, and markers/crayons.

Adrianne Gilley is a local paper artist who received her B.A. in Art Studio from the University of Kentucky with a focus on Fiber and Book Art in 2003, and her M.S. in Library and Information Science in 2008.
