Sewanee’s Black History Bookmaking Workshop

Arts & Entertainment

In support of the work of community members and the Roberson Project on preserving Sewanee’s Black History, artist Greg Pond will lead a bookmaking workshop in the Univeristy Art Gallery from 2 to 5 p.m. on March 1.

As with the Digitization Fairs this summer, participants should bring personal memorabilia—photographs, scrapbooks, postcards and letters, school records and yearbooks, trophies and diplomas—anything that reflects life in Sewanee in years past, and anything they’d like represented in their book. 

Equipment for scanning, photographing and printing materials will be on hand. Pond will assist with planning books and scanning materials, and will lead participants through the process of assembling a book with simple, hand-stitched bindings. Bookmaking materials will be provided.

If you would like to participate, please send an email to <robersonproject@sewanee.edu> .
