It was a sunny, crisp day. Perhaps it was the amazing weather that kept most of the WOTS visitors outside. We were located inside the Vancouver Public Library food court area.
The tunnel books with Gina generated A LOT of interest from families. Kids swarmed the table and got to work on their tunnel books with all due seriousness of burgeoning book artists.
Other types of visitors to our CBBAG tables were mainly book designers, book artists and a few curious onlookers. A handful of folks purposely sought us out for more information on workshops and memberships.
We learned some lessons that we will put to good use for next year …
- we need signage to clearly show who we are
- at least two CBBAG people should be at the tables … it makes it more social … gives us time to catch up with one another and be more available to visitors with questions
- mini workshops (i.e. tunnel books) and demonstrations (i.e. coptic, stab binding) garner more visitors to our tables
It was busy and fun. I wish you were there!
