In an age where books are going digital, The Children’s Art Carnival will present a workshop for teens and adults on simple and classic bookmaking – journals and sketch-books. Over the course of three 90 minute sessions, students (ages 13+) will learn basic book structures and receive hands-on instruction in bookbinding techniques. The workshop is geared to teach students to make an 80 page small journal. All supplies included but will need to be picked up at The Children's Art Carnival prior to the workshop.
