Where do the workshops take place?
Workshops take place either virtually or in person. When possible, I’m happy to travel to give a workshop.
How do virtual workshops work?
With schools, I often send the materials by post. A week before the workshop I send the Zoom link along with some tips for successful virtual workshops. In the classroom there needs to be a Smart Board and a computer with a camera and microphone. On my side, I use two cameras: one shows my face and the other shows my hands and my work surface.
When participants are in their own homes, each person has their own camera and microphone and we see each other on Zoom.
How do children stay interested during virtual workshops?
I vary the activities, demonstrate techniques through storytelling, and create lots of opportunities for interaction with students. There is asynchronous time when they work on their projects and they can go up to the camera to show me their work or ask a question.
How much do workshops cost?
The price depends on the type of workshop, the location, the number of participants and the materials. Please contact me for details.
Do you offer workshops for adults?
Absolutely! I have taught adult workshops in venues such as museums, bookstores, paper stores, community centres and printshops.
And you don't have to be part of an organization to indulge your creativity. If you're curious and want to delve into the world of book arts, gather a group of friends, family members or colleagues and we'll organize a workshop.
What supplies do we need for workshops?
It depends on the workshop, but in most cases the supplies are pretty basic: scissors, glue stick, markers or coloured pencils and regular copy paper. I supply specialized materials.
