Join the Book-Making Camp!

Making artist books – July Camp!

Most places at the Explorator/Robinson Crusoe camp have been taken up for July, but there are still spaces available for the Book-making camp!

So, here is the info again:

Book-Making Camp (July camp only)

Come spend a week discovering how to make books. From building the structure to filling it up. Whether to sketch, write down ideas, or keep notes, many different people keep books. In this camp, we will explore what “BOOK” means to us, and find many different ways to expand on the definition.

Run by artist-scientist Isabelle Desjeux, these camps provide structured time to learn a skill and open time to discover and perfect personal interests. A guest artist will make an appearance, providing a different perspective!

Making friends is also a great part of the camp and we invite parents to join us on the very last day, from 11:00am onward to come and view an exhibition of the works, and meet the new friends. Bring some food to share and we’ll have a picnic.
