Outreach is what happened to January. For three weeks in a row in January, I went to three different schools each week to teach papermaking, letterpress printing, and bookmaking. I met with over 480 students during that time, some of whom were very reluctant participants (you know who you are), and was darned impressed with the talent of each and every one of them! I have heard rumors that there will be some teen entries to our Paper, Print and Poetry Exhibition at the end of March.
Also during January, I was able to squeeze in a papermaking class in our Children’s Department, and we hosted an adult papermaking class with self-taught local artist Joan Robertson.
Here are some photos from January’s outreach:
Coming soon...what happened to February?
