Baltimore City Educator Workshop Recap

On Saturday we wrapped up our second annual Baltimore City Educator workshop with Susan Stockdale and Liz Wolf. What a treat! Susan gave us a peak into her creative process which includes free association supported by tons of research! Her upcoming title, Fantastic Flowers (March 2017) is a wonderful display of flowers masquerading as ballerinas, parrots, spoons, and more.


After Susan's talk we shared a fantastic lunch provided by Classic Catering before being thoroughly wowed by our next activity. Lunch was followed by a fabulous bookmaking workshop lead by Liz Wolf. Please do contact Liz for art workshops, she is amazing!

Teachers were introduced to many new book structures and we all had a ball joining in on the fun! During the workshop, teachers learned how to make an accordian book, a concertina, and a pop up. What fun!

At the end of the day, participants were sent home with free picture books provided by Jump In Studio and The Enoch Pratt Free LibraryAll in all, the day was phenomenal. Many thanks to our Baltimore Bookmaking team, and The Reginald F. Lewis Museum for hosting us. We'll see you again next year!
