Summer workshop 2024

Why does a book look the way it does today – and not completely different? Has it always looked like this? How long have books been around? And how do text and images get into them? How do the Japanese bind? Who are the Copts? How many pages can I get out of one sheet of paper? With these and similar questions in our luggage, we want to go on an expedition with you.

Our base camp

We – on tables, on the floor, on the wall and in the open air.

Our equipment

Paper, pencils, folding bone, needle, awl, thread, scissors, printing ink, rollers, Lego bricks and miracles.

Destination of the journey

To create your own country using valley and mountain folds in the paper. To tell your stories. Go home with new stories.

For children and young people aged between 10 and 16.
