Philadelphia Center for the Book, workshops!

For a short time over the summer, Philadelphia Center for the Book has its own gallery and work space on a busy section of  Phillie’s popular South Street corridor. The arrangement is part of a program whereby artists groups get currently unrented commercial spaces for free in exchange for doing cleaning, painting, minor repairs, and paying utilities.

Several workshops have been scheduled into the space along with a small book arts exhibition. This past weekend I gave a one-day class on paper engineering. Next week Erin Sweeney will present a workshop on sample books, and Esther Smith gave another on toy books. Everyone’s excited that PCBA has this chance for a physical presence in the city!
