MAKER MAKER: Little Books with Laura K. Watson

Join us for our first MAKER MAKER workshop of the fall and learn to make your own small-scale books with Sackville artist, Laura K. Watson.

Discover how, with just a few simple stitches, you can create one-of-a-kind handbound books. We’ll have stacks of paper for you to choose from and rubber stamps for you to embellish your covers or pages. Make one book or make more and take home a tiny library.


Laura Watson is an artist and writer living in Sackville, NB in the Siknikt district of Mi’kma’ki. She acquired her BFA from Mount Allison University in 2015 and is currently Tantramar’s poet laureate. She makes zines, prints, and textile works that combine drawing and poetry.

MAKER MAKER is a monthly program of seriously small after-hours art workshops. Led by diverse Maker Mentors, each workshop introduces a pocket-sized art project that can be made in two hours or less. Designed for accomplished and aspiring makers alike, MAKER MAKER is for anyone interested in making small things by hand with friends and fellow makers. This informal workshop series explores how working small can be practical, portable, and playful, economical, sharable, and even wearable.

MAKER MAKER is free, and all materials are provided; no registration required.
