Contemporary Bookmaking Workshop with Dave DiMarchi at Morven Museum & Garden on Saturday, November 11

November 11 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

$40 - $55

Morven Museum & Garden is the home of one of America’s first published female poets, Annis Boudinot Stockton. What more fitting setting could be imagined than the Morven Carriage House on Veterans’ Day to create your own set of handmade books? Join Dave DiMarchi, Book Artist and founder of 9 in Hand Press, for Morven’s first bookbinding workshop on Saturday, November 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Artists, writers, poets, and all who love handmade books will discover the tools, materials and tricks of the bookmaking trade!  In this workshop, explore binding in fun and contemporary ways, creating multiple book structures for highly personalized soft and hardcover artists’ books. Every artist/writer/poet will leave with a minimum of six beautiful handmade books, and all the knowledge needed to explore binding in his or her own work. Beginners welcome and encouraged!

Please bring several favorite decorative papers and one yard of lightweight fabric. All additional materials and tools provided.
