Books are things you buy, borrow from the library, or read on a tablet, but you certainly don’t make them. Or do you?
Children ages 8 to 12, attending the new Museum Mornings program this month at Wilton Historical Society, will be doing just that — hand-crafting their own books. Sessions will be held Saturday, Sept. 12, 19, and 26 from 11 to 12:30 at the society, 224 Danbury Road.
Museum Mornings is a hands-on history/art workshop. This month, children will learn how to make books they can use for journals, notes, art, and gifts. Some will be made by hand-sewing the binding, some with yarn, and some accordion style. There will be an opportunity to try quill writing, too, as children may want to write in their journals. They may also want to create special notes and cards.
Children are encouraged to bring paper and illustrations they may wish to incorporate into their project to the first session. The cost for three sessions is $45 per member child, $60 per non-member child. Individual sessions are not available.
Space is limited and registration is required.
