> Hello everyone,
> Currently I am brainstorming ideas for a hands-on project appropriate for
> students (mostly 4th graders) for our upcoming exhibit, "Women in
Printing and Publishing
> in California: The 19th and early 20th Centuries." I am thinking about
doing some type of
> bookmaking project that includes making the book and some form of
printing - either wood
> blocks, stamps etc.
> As the school groups have approximately one hour to complete their
projects, I need to
> develop something rather simple, but fun and worthwhile.
> If you have any bookmaking successes or ideas you would like to share, I
would love to
> hear from you! Also, since this exhibit is geared toward an older
audience, any ideas you
> might have to bring it to life for kids would be greatly appreciated.
> Thank you in advance!
