Free Bookmaking Workshop for Kids: Irish Book Day

Book making workshop Ann Kenny

Available online for two weeks from Wednesday March 17, 2021
Lá Fhéile Pádraig / St. Patrick's Day (Solas Nua's Irish Book Day)

Kids - ever wanted to make your own book? Join invited Irish artist Ann Kenny for our online Bookmaking Workshop for Kids, available free, online from March 17th for two weeks. In this workshop, Ann will demonstrate three easy and fun book-making techniques. She’ll make a simple notebook suitable for the youngest members of the family, then she’ll demonstrate two book folding structures for the older kids in the family. She’ll also suggest a simple printing technique to build visual stories on the pages of the books. All you’ll need is a selection of assorted papers, a ruler, pen, tape, pencil, eraser, inkpad, paint and some ribbon!

Ann is an Irish print artist, illustrator and book maker. She is a member of the Black Church Print studio in Dublin. You’ll find her on or on Instagram as annmakesbooks.
