Event Details

In this workshop, we will use basic bookmaking techniques to reflect on thoughts of isolation, resilience and the future during the coronavirus pandemic. Structures like The Book in a Page and the Flag Book go beyond the traditional book and become 3-D formats for creativity and expression. The books we make together will serve as “time capsules” that we can seal off and revisit at the time of our choosing. These projects can be assembled using household materials and/or with tools purchased at most local stores. No previous experience needed!


Otis Street Arts Project is an independently run art center. It encompasses open door studios, maker space, and a gallery that hosts rotating regional exhibitions. There is a flexible event space for lectures, performance art, small theater, and community gatherings. It is home to professional artists of diverse disciplines dedicated to supportive collaboration and discourse.
