Spring-Themed Book Making Workshop 

At Pardee-Morris House 

New Haven, Conn. (May 8, 2023)— Mixed-media book artist Paulette Rosen will hold a special workshop for adults to create a spring-themed book at the Pardee-Morris House (PMH). The free presentation will be at PMH on Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 2 p.m. For weather updates check FB/IG or call 203-562-4183.

Using paper, glue, colored pencil, markers and other materials, participants will create a hard-cover, accordion-spine book with popup and pages made from vintage postcards. The book’s inspiration will be the historic Pardee-Morris House or the on-site garden. 

Rosen is an artist who makes mixed-media drawings, artists’ books and boxes in Hamden, Connecticut. She currently heads the Book Arts department at Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, where she has taught since 1996. Her books are in many collections including Yale University Arts Library, The National Gallery of Art, The Library of Congress, Trinity College Watkinson Library, and Connecticut College Shain Library.

About the Pardee-Morris House

Located at 325 Lighthouse Road, in New Haven, the Pardee-Morris House dates from about 1780, and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. Built by Amos Morris around 1750, the house was burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779 and rebuilt and expanded by the Morris family. In 1918, William Pardee, adescendant of the Morris family, willed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today the New HavenMuseum.
