The Best Gift You'll Ever Make (Book Arts with MC Hyland)
Thursday, May 10 @ 6:30 PM
CWP House @ 1500 Englewood, Saint Paul
This year, we’re creating beautiful gifts for members of the 2012 graduating class under the guidance of MN book arts maven, poet and publisher MC Hyland. Don't worry if you have never done anything like this. This event is the perfect time to give it a try and a great time to get ideas for your own handmade gift books. Meet us at the CWP House, and bring a glue stick, bone folder, and exacto knife if you have them. (If not, that's okay too. :) Hope to see you there.
