Visiting Artist Workshop: Hanging Book with Mary Ann Sampson

Teens and Adults

$45 for members; $55 for not-yet members

Join us for an all-day book arts workshop with exhibiting artist Mary Ann Sampson. Sampson will guide us through the ancient method of building a hanging book structure, also known as a prayer book. The Palm-leaf prayer book inspired the Hanging Book. Sampson has created hand-made books since the 1980s and will share her gift and knowledge with us for this unique workshop. All supplies are included. We encourage students to bring a sack lunch or order food delivery as we will be making in the studio all day. Registration required.


This project has been made possible by grants from Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
