Rob will share simple techniques that will allow you to make your own, ala carte, one of a kind, customized sketchbooks! Choose paper and cover stock from a wide selection of salvaged materials and make a unique creation all on your own. In addition, Rob will provide insights into how making your own sketchbooks can be economical and creatively satisfying. At the end of the workshop you will have in your hands a minimum of 5 hand-made sketchbooks.
Also feel free to hang around afterwards to sketch, make art, write, talk, etc.
*All materials to be provided, but feel free to bring along any paper you might like to have in a sketchbook.
