Tournée Générale !

As part of Tournée Générale, which marks the grand opening and celebration of the Grand T Theater’s Get-the-Show-on-the-Road mobile seasons, l’œil du monde is pleased to announce two workshops: one is “la main à la page” led by Aude Marie and the other is “Dessiner c’est gravé” led by Paul Parant. Volunteers will be ready and waiting to lead storytime sessions in both French and the author’s mother tongue! We look forward to seeing you at the Caserne Mellinet on Saturday, September 24, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

A workshop proposing the creation of a notebook using bits of recycled paper pleasing to all whims and fancies. Choose your favorite designs, customize a cover and pages, fold, bind, and call it a day! Whether strewn with wee words or sizeable secrets, all that’s left for you to do is fill in the blanks!

Dessiner c’est gravé

Using a Tetra Pak® carton, let your etch-gination run wild using an ancestral printmaking technique referred to as intaglio. Then, with a press, print your work of art onto paper. A fun way to make a pintsize, custom poster. Copy?
