Ever want to learn how to make your own books? – those ones with the cool stitching on the spine that lie flat when you open them? Artist extraordinaire and Gallery Gachet associate member, Karen Ward, can teach you how! Please join us for a 3-hour bookbinding workshop.

Space is limited and we are able to accommodate up to 8 participants. You are best to RSVP in advance via Eventbrite. If not all tickets are sold online, drop in tickets will be sold at the studio. The full cost of the workshop is $40.00. Sometimes, we offer a sliding scale option for our workshops, but this time we are trying to raise funds for ongoing expenses while we wait to hear about grant funding. If you would really like to take this workshop but cannot afford it, please contact us at WePressVancouver [at] We will definitely be offering this workshop again, and do provide workshops for free through Gallery Gachet, Carnegie Centre, and Oppenheimer Park. We try to accommodate as many people as we can! Supplies will be provided (included in the price of registration).

You can also pay by PayPal.

Karen Ward lives in the Downtown Eastside and is an artist and activist. Her work often incorporates the stuff that other people throw away: it is a grassroots approach to art that feeds her political work, and of course vice versa. She saw her first letterpress almost twenty years ago, and did academic work on the history of printing and bookmaking. Much of Ward’s work involves using old forms in new and unexpected ways.
