Join us at the Blue Ball Barn at Alapocas Run State Park as you create your very own mini booklet from scratch! During this workshop, participants will be provided all the materials needed to create a unique 4.5”x5.5” booklet using craft bookbinding techniques. Their creation will be a true work of Folk Art, incorporating their ideas and experiences into the design. This workshop completes the Cadette Book Artist Badge, but any Girl Scout Junior level (4th grade) and older is welcome to participate. Scheduled as requested, $8 per participant, and all girls must be accompanied by a supervising adult.
