Rene has a passion for book binding which she shares with our students here at Villages Folk School. She passes along what she has learned to others so that they can enjoy binding their own books or journals. Rene offers a book binding class each spring and fall at the Welcone Center in Keosauqua.
Join others as they gather in the Villages of Van Buren to learn from the resident artisans in their personal studios. Spend a weekend plein air painting along the Des Moines River, or step back in time as you throw bowls in a Pottery Shop. The inspiring and relaxing atmosphere of scenic Van Buren County, Iowa is, and will continue to be, a haven for creative beings.
