Things to bring to the Bookbinding Workshop

In this workshop you will be creating your own books. There are parts of this process that are messy so it is recommended that you bring work clothes that you do not mind getting dirty along with comfortable shoes. Also, an apron with pockets is recommended.

The Lake is very inviting so you will want to bring a bathing suit and beach towel. A large brimmed hat, sunglasses and sunscreen is recommended. We will provide life jackets which are required on the boats.

The weather can be variable so plan accordingly, layering is a good strategy. Bring a water bottle that you can refill from our deep well.
