Presented monthly, Saturday Stories invites guest illustrators to lead children and their adult companions in a read-aloud workshop related to the wide range of materials and processes that illustrators use to create their picture books.
Susie Oh will discuss the inspiration behind her book Soomi’s Sweater and share her own patch-worked and embroidered mending projects. After a demonstration of basic sewing techniques, workshop participants will practice easy stitches like the running stitch, back stitch, and whip stitch. They’ll use these stitches to patch together special mixed-media Mother’s Day cards. Workshop includes materials and a signed book per family, gifted by Clavis Publishers for this special program.
Good for all ages 5 and up.
This is an in-person workshop. RSVP required. $25 covers admission and workshop for 1 adult + 1 child. Additional children are $10/each.
