Learn the art of bookbinding from our artist in residence, Marianne Hoffmeister Castro. She’ll guide you through the process of creating a small journal by using an awl and a Coptic stitch technique. Once the final product is in your hand, it’s time to fill up those pages! Hoffmeister Castro and Minnette Marr, the Wildflower Center’s Conservation Botanist and Research Associate, will lead a walk along the Hill Country Trail, during which you’ll surely be inspired to record your observations.  

Please note: This is an intermediate art class. Some experience with sewing or needle and thread work is recommended.
