pop up/workshop success!!!

May 2, 2011

the BIG THINGS pop up and shop and bookbinding workshop this weekend was a total success!!! thanks to write ups from tons of local sites (refinery29, 7×7, fecal face, the sf bay guardian, sf station +++), we had an amazing turnout of people of all ages! it was a gorgeous day for limeade and cookies, and chelsea and anna did a fantastic job of preparing the program and materials, giving everyone the option of creating four different kinds of books. the BIG THINGS SHOP was open and our treasures blended in quite well w/bob newland’s 1970s rodeo photos. BIG THANKS to artists chelsea & anna, jana at the people’s gallery, and all of our guests for helping make this event such a great success!

if you couldn’t make it, don’t worry! stay tuned for more info on how to make the books we made & watch for more workshops coming soon…
