10am-Noon: Embroidered Picture Books in the Atrium - First Floor

Drop by to create your own embroidered picture book. You'll start by selecting an image from a children's book in the public domain and then hand-stitch a pattern, image, or piece of text with thread. No previous sewing experience needed; all supplies provided.

11am-1pm: Handmade Books Petting Zoo in the Atrium - First Floor

Did you know that IU Libraries has over 2,300 handmade artists' books? Drop by to see samples from artists across the country and world. Explore how artistic bookmaking examples may be used for teaching and learning in your classroom.

Noon-2pm: Handmade Books Workshop in the MILL (sign-up required, limited to first 12 who register)

Learn how to make books appropriate for classroom teaching using only paper, thread, and a few hand tools. We will sew three different blank books: a single-signature pamphlet, a two-signature pamphlet, and a five signature long-stitch book. These structures can be modified or embellished in endless ways once you know the basic method of construction, and are based on centuries-old methods of bookbinding! Learn about the early history of the codex, or book, through additional materials that will be provided. This workshop will meet in the MILL Makerspace, room 2260.
