Workshop Description  

In this workshop, appropriate for both the novice and expert book artist, Rosae Reeder will give you the opportunity to create a moveable artist book from start to finish. We will start by exploring the ways that book artist Colette Fu draws on personal experiences in her art. Then you will identify a story from your own life which will form the basis for your book.

Proof of Vaccination

Beginning on September 1, visitors and program attendees must show proof of vaccination along with all ​staff members and volunteers. With limited space for social distancing in our historic house and library, requiring proof of vaccination is the best way to protect the health and safety of our visitors and staff.

  • Visitors and program attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination along with their photo ID at the front desk. We will accept your original CDC issued card or a photo.
  • With the vaccine requirement in place, masks are not required but are encouraged and will be available for use.
  • Visitors who are unable to show proof of vaccination will not be able to visit The Rosenbach at this time, including unvaccinated children under the age of 12.
