Fishing Opener


Fishing Opener
with Ellen Ferrari
Saturday, March 10; 10am-12pm noon
For families with children ages 2 and up

Kevin Sherry’s I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean is our fishing opener. Make a lake with fish stamps and cookie cutters. Create creatures with letters F–I–S–H, E–E–L, etc. Incise a big ocean thing block and print with brayers and barens. Use a roller stamp for schools of fish. Finish with gyotaku – Japanese fish printing!

Join Ellen Ferrari for Saturday and Sunday mornings of family book arts fun! Each workshop starts off with a story and game to warm up your creativity and then dives into book arts projects. Workshops accommodate a range of developmental levels so that adults and children (or) adult/child teams may choose to work together or side-by-side. Each participant receives supplies to use during the workshop, but may choose to bring one set home if working with his or her partner. Ellen will provide older children with suggestions for extending their learning.

Adult/Child pair: $40 ($35 members) + $5 supply fee
Additional participant (adult or child): $20 ($17.50) + $2.50 supply fee
