Word & Image (IONA)

Wednesday, August 28, 2019, 10:00 am

This session combines poetry with visual arts. In the first class, participants will put together a simple pamphlet-style book, using a variety of collage and recycled materials to make a personalized working journal for the work we’ll do in the coming weeks. It will be amazing how intimate these books feel to the maker and how this will set the tone for what is written/drawn/pasted inside.
