The ninth annual Handmade & Bound Festival will be held as part of the Southern Festival of Books on War Memorial Plaza from October 11-13 in Nashville. Watkins College of Art sponsors the event as a celebration of all print, paper, and book-related art forms, partnering with Humanities Tennessee. The festival will feature a curated selection of art from unique local artists and artisans. Visitors can browse the selection of specialty stationary, zines, handmade books, and prints. This is a great opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping with distinctive gifts! In addition to the array of quality art vendors, Watkins also host a kids tent that this year will focus on fun print and book crafts inspired by literary monsters.
