NEW workshop just announced

We have finalized our plans with Carol Sloan for a 2 day workshop
here at the new studio for Oct 12th and 13th entitled
“Bound By Heart, Made By Hand”

Put together a hand bound journal or artist book as you learn to integrate your personal keepsakes. You will learn how to construct a book using techniques that anyone can master. We will cover ways to add your vintage ephemera, add bits and pieces of lace, trim, fabric & fibers as well as treasured papers to create a book that is uniquely yours.

This class is packed with great techniques including:
Understanding the differences in papers and
acrylic mediums and which mediums to use at what time.

Great ways to include vintage linens and keepsakes
that you have been hanging onto will also be included in this workshop.

Other techniques that you will learn include the following:
•Basic construction of a handmade book.
•Sewing on nontraditional surfaces.
•making and painting signatures/book pages
•collage methods to create beautiful book pages
•constructing a waterproof book cover
•machine and hand-stitching techniques to attach signatures

Whether you use your journal to record your thoughts,
do some urban sketching or jot down ideas
for your next project, you’ll love the techniques
that you learn AND you will go home
with a “one of a kind” hand bound book
that will be the envy of all your friends!

DATES: Tues and Wed. Oct 11th & 12th
