Event Description

Flag Books with Sarah Matthews

Create a one-of-a-kind sculptural flag book that is deceptively simple but has infinite possibilities. This stunning structure was created by Hedi Kyle for her book April Diary. Join Sarah Matthews for this hands-on workshop to learn how to create a flag book format that incorporates recycled paper-scrap collage into your final work of art.

Registrants receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and Zoom meeting link one week prior to each session.

Camp activities are largely designed to make use of materials and tools you might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.

Session participants can request a professional development certificate of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
