Forage Against the Machine

with Anna Haglin
Thursdays: June 2, 9, 16; 6–9pm CT

This in-person workshop combines urban foraging with bookbinding. Take a field trip to the Central Mississippi Riverfront Regional Park (a four-block walk from MCBA) to identify and ethically harvest wild plants. Then, head back to MCBA’s studios to learn how to press plants and execute two herbarium-friendly bindings: the side-stab structure and a screw post album. Grow your plant identification skills as you incorporate pressed plants into your new bindings.

All skill levels welcome
Certificate: 9 hours, Category A or D

$198/participant (10% discount for MCBA members) + $35 materials fee
$99 for BIPOC participants (10% discount for MCBA members) + $35 materials fee
We are offering a reduced rate to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participants to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom this does not apply, register at the rate listed first and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make reduced rates available.

All in-person program participants are required to be vaccinated, have received a booster dose, and wear a mask while in MCBA’s studios. Proof of vaccination must be received three days (72 hours) before the start of the workshop or enrollment is subject to cancellation with a full refund. See our COVID Safety Guidelines for more information.

Please note: Registration closes 5/25 at midnight (CT).
