Friday, November 2nd: Wearable Narratives

Wearable Narratives
Center for Book Arts (28 W. 27th St., 3rd Fl., Manhattan)

With Shanna Yarbrough. You don’t have to get a tattoo to wear your story! Book artists adorn anything and everything with words — clothes and jewelry are no exception. After a brief tutorial and introduction to materials, attendees will have an opportunity to make a personal statement through words or images that can be worn. We’ll have on hand the tools and textiles needed to embroider a mini-narrative on a cloth bracelet or brooch, or to write/draw your message in a miniature book pendant. (This project is perfect for gift-making: this well may be the most enjoyable and least expensive holiday shopping trip you’ve ever taken!)
