Mini-Books of Failure Workshop

inPrint artist Maureen Da Silva has long cultivated a practice of turning her failed works on paper into adorable and miniature hard-cover books, developing various mini-libraries to go alongside with them!
Done in German-style covers, collect any works on paper you *think* failed - whether a drawing, a print, or even maybe some writing! - and give it a new life as an abstracted miniature book. We'll supply paper for text blocks even if you don't have a failure at hand. Books can be left as is OR turned into a necklace or hanging ornament at participants' desire.
No bookbinding experience required, feel free to fail at making these books too, there's no judgement here as you are learning!!
