Mindful History: Decorative Arts Folded Books


Join us for a Museum-based experience focusing on connecting participants with our exhibitions and more during the long months of winter.  Experiences include exploring art and history, yoga and meditation, decorative arts, and journaling at the Whaling Museum and NHA Historic Properties. 

 Decorative Arts Folded Books with Mary Emery Lacoursiere

Learn to make this simple book structure where each page has its own pocket to insert written pages, drawings, ticket stubs, and anything special you want to keep.  Using decorative papers or recycled materials, you make the folded book that gets inserted into a protective cover.  Once you have learned this book structure, you can make it again in any size that fits your needs.

Generously supported by The Tupancy-Harris Foundation
