Cut-Ups and Collage with Lauren Camp
“This workshop will let you dream and think and cut and paste your way to self expression. It’s fun and painless- good for getting your worries out, or for describing in the most poetic terms how you feel about the snow or your sofa or your grandmother or the guy next door. It might even help you remember and document some important family stories in unexpected ways.”

Bookmaking: A Pairing of Design and Content with Julie Wagner
“We will make simple books to house visual and/or written poems, exploring how the structure can interact with the words. All materials and tools will be provided. Wagner will also have samples to illustrate how book structures and meaning can interact.”

Making Books Using the Traditional Brazilian Literary Form: Cordel with Zoe Bird

“Cordel is a popular low-budget form for pamphlets of advertising, and poetry and other literary forms. Cordel is so named because the pamphlets are hung on strings for display. Participants will produce hand-made books that reference the art on display in the Gallery to create collaged call-and-response cordel books/poems that dialogue directly with the gallery exhibition. Books will be made using visual and textual elements from recycled materials provided by the instructor.”

Community Gallery Hours of Operation:
Tuesday through Friday: 10 am to 5 pm
Saturday: 9:30 am to 5 pm
