Bookmaking Workshop for Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows

We brought the Project Shop to the Aspen Institute – including bookmaking materials, collaging supplies, and an vintage table top letterpress!  Reina facilitated a bookmaking workshop for the Aspen Institute Fellows, a group of heart centered leaders working to improve the lives of children and families in the U.S.  Ascend Fellows took some time to reflect, and design their own hand sewn book.  Many collaged about their experience, and were blown away by the magic of printing their own original ex-libris bookplates on our vintage tabletop platen letterpress. Some planned to use their book as a journal, or to give away as a gift.  After months of online meetings it was the first time the 2021 class of Ascend Fellows met in person, and Reina’s bookmaking workshop facilitated an amazing opportunity for creativity, community, and connection.

Danny Carreno / The Art Base Mentorship

“I’m a senior at Roaring Fork High School, throughout this amazing opportunity I plan to target mixed media and create various pieces that are based upon self revelation. I am most excited to be working with Reina Katzenberger, a professional artist with the ability to create within high levels of skill and character whom I know will guide me, inspire me, and motivate me to become a greater artist day by day. Therefore, I am also excited to expand my skill sets in art as I bring myself to open my mind and soul deeply, broadly. This will allow me to create pieces that uncover more about myself through my art.”
