Craft Happy Hour: Split Page Books with Yuka Petz
Thursday, May 20th
6 PM - 8:30 PM

Also known as mix-and-match books, split- page books are simple, yet compelling structures that encourage lots of hands- on engagement. In this workshop, we will examine a variety of artist-made and commercially printed examples and then make our own folded and sewn variations of split-page books. We will also discuss creating split-page books in collaboration with adults and children, and how to structure content to create cohesive books that retain the play of chance operations.
