Join Esther K. Smith for a festive evening of making cards that transform into ornaments and back again, with pop-up and collage elements. Esther K. Smith is the author of titles including How to Make Books and Magic Books & Paper Toys, and one half of Purgatory Pie Press, a dynamic bookbinding and letterpress printing duo who use only real wood and metal movable type in their print shop, old school style.

Please bring old school pictures or snapshots to cut up, and a bone folder, if you have one. We’ll also have spare materials on hand. This Craft Night is open to makers of all skill levels.
