What Binds Your Community? A Participatory Arts Bookbinding Workshop
Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
800 South Halsted Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607
Join the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum for a bookbinding workshop inspired by the work of Hull-House co-founder and labor activist Ellen Gates Starr (1859–1940). In or around the year 1899, Starr established the Hull-House Bookbindery, a workshop space which offered practical training to the settlement’s surrounding immigrant communities in order that they might be able to seek employment opportunities in Chicago’s growing printing trade.
This program is led by artist Regin Igloria, founder of North Branch Projects, an independent project that offers community-based bookbinding classes. In the workshop, you’ll make books together and share in conversation and refreshments.
This program is presented as one in a series of four hands-on artist workshops offered in conjunction with the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum’s symposium Participatory Arts: The Legacy of Chicago's Hull-House Artists.
