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.
