Jacob’s Ladder

with Erica Spitzer Rasmussen
Wednesday, July 7; 7–9pm CT

Explore the playful book and toy form known as Jacob’s Ladder. First, various examples will be displayed and manipulated. Then, through the use of book board, ribbons, and imagery or text, participants will complete an eight-paneled book that can be displayed in multiple configurations.

Instruction will equip participants with skills to create more complicated Jacob’s Ladder books after the workshop. This virtual workshop is designed for those with intermediate binding skills and requires one hour of prep (details in materials list).
