UPDATED: Bookmaking at Read! Fest 2015


I will be teaching FREE (pre-registration is required) bookmaking workshops this July as part of the National Library Board’s second annual Read! Fest, a nation-wide literacy festival with the objective of helping Singaporeans (and Singapore residents!) rediscover the simple pleasures of reading!

In this three-hour workshop, we will construct a carousel book, a multi-layered sculptural construction that folds flat like a bound book but can open either full length or into a circle to create a set of “scenes.” These books became popular in the Victorian Era and we’ll be using local literature as a key visual element in the construction.

So, join me on:

  • July 11 at Bedok Public Library (2pm – 5pm);
  • July 12 at Bukit Batok Public LIbrary (2pm – 5pm);
  • July 18 at Yishun Public Library (2:30pm – 5:30pm); or
  • July 19 at Clementi Public Library (2:30pm – 5:30pm) 

Each workshop is limited to 20 participants, and online registration is open. You can also “egister” at library eKiosks an any NLB branch. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. There is currently no waiting list.
