Tracing Family
Monday, January 13th 5:30-8:00pm

Join us for a book making workshop to honor your family and loved ones. Bring with you family photos, images, or text that can be copied to create a beautiful piece of visual artwork.

Artist Gaby Hurtado-Ramos, who created the art for the ASYLUM exhibition, will introduce you to a variety of simple binding techniques and image transfer methods. Along with prompts and starting points that have been helpful in their own artwork, we will dive into making a handmade book that might honor or bring you closer to an ancestor.

This workshop requires a sliding scale $25-50 supplies fee. Limited scholarships availble by emailing:
