Students from Dan Shafer’s Book Design I class taught drop-in bookmaking workshops to children and teens at 11 Seattle Public Library branches this summer. They taught Seattle youth how to make pop-up books in partnership with the Seattle Public Library Foundation.
Students involved in the project were Gabriela Ayala (Art), Kelsey Rogers (Performance Production), and Ella Shkurina (Design). The Teen Services Librarian at one of the branches wrote: “I want to thank you and the wonderful Cornish students for the Make a Book Today program we had last week. It was really fun, especially to see everyone sitting quietly cutting and pasting their books. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide the program!”
