Re-Introduction to Letter-Writing

with Hope Amico
Wednesday, February 8; 7–9pm CT

Invigorate your interest in letter-writing! Using repurposed materials, learn to make a simple piece of stationery that can be folded and mailed without an envelope in this virtual workshop. A template will be provided that you can choose to strictly follow or use as a reference. We will discuss how to fold a letter writing habit into your schedule, creative ideas for pen pals and prompts to get you writing! The goal is to create stationery that will inspire while offering ourselves a chance to slow down in our communications.

All skill levels welcome

MCBA offers two scholarship types for workshops—Financial Hardship Scholarships and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Scholarships—to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom these scholarships do not apply, register at the “Adult” rate and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make scholarships available.
