spy museum (dc)

The International Spy Museum (SPY) is an independent nonprofit museum which documents the tradecraft, history, and contemporary role of espionage. It holds the largest collection of international espionage artifacts on public display. 

Every nation considers intelligence essential to its national security. The Museum lifts the veil of secrecy on the hidden world of intelligence, exploring its successes and failures, challenges, and controversies. The Museum's mission is to create compelling exhibitions and other learning experiences that shed light on the shadow world of espionage and intelligence, educating and challenging each of us to engage critically with the complex world around us. On this fieldtrip we will explore important topics such as the impact of secrecy on civil liberties, the changing role of technology in intelligence work, and the challenges of disinformation in a social media environment.

bookbinding @ Drama Mama Bookshop

The long-stitch bookbinding method is one of the most simple bookbinding techniques known to man (and woman), it requires no glue, can look as equally rustic as it can professional and offers fantastic binding strength. The technique involves sewing the signatures direct to the cover.
In this workshop, we will use the following materials to make a personalized, unique journal/book:

The Cover- Each cover is made with American made, 100% recycled Baltic Birch Wood. It’s matte, uncoated finish enhances the natural texture. Each cover is laser cut by Drama Mama at a local maker space in Baltimore, MD.

The Background: Personalize your cover by choosing from six different background colors made with acid free cardstock.
Filler Paper: All filler paper, no matter what you choose, is 100% Sugarcane Paper.
