Winter 2011 Bookmaking Classes for PDX Kids

If you've been keeping up with my bog, you know I'll be offering six children's bookmaking classes at Green Bean Books, 1600 NE Alberta, Portland, this winter! I am thrilled to continue working with this fantastic venue.

The focus this season will be movable structures. Classes start a week from today (Thursday, January 6th) with a pop-up structure.

We think about structure, content, literacy, and fine motor skills while making an awesome interactive works of art. Take home your creation and instructions to make more goodies.

Here it is on Green Bean's calender...

We're accepting calls now to reserve spots (Jennifer at 503-954-2354); sign up for a few or as many classes as you like. Rolling admission takes place all through the season, but it may be best to call early to get the dates you want. Space is limited to ensure lots of space for our bookmaking.

Classes take place after school hours and are also a nice supplement to home schooling :)

  1. Wow! That is wonderful Sarah. I would love to do something like that for my local library.

  2. It's been fun! I should look into libraries around me, now that you mention it... I like to pair the classes with books and usually hand out a reading list of what books about the topic they can *get* at local libraries...
