Holiday Gift Box Workshop With Anne Elser

Hallo friends,

I've completed the planning of two new Holiday workshops at Binders Art Supply in Atlanta I'll be teaching this Fall. One's for the Bookbinding crowd, the other for Inkers (Calligraphers.) Signup on line will be available soon (you'll see a link to it here on my site) or you can contact Eli Pelizza ( at Binders to sign up over the phone or by mailing a check.

Bookmaking Workshop with Anne Elser: Holiday Gift Boxes Saturday/Sunday Dec. 3rd-4th|11:00AM-4:30PM|Sale price for early enrollment: $190, Regular Price: $205|Min. 3/Max.7

Make a Collapsable Container and a Keepsake Box in one weekend workshop. Both are made from chipboard covered with decorative Washi Paper and can be used to hold supplies, brushes, pens, q-tips, jewelry, gifts, trinkets, ribbon and more. Handouts supplied and hands on advice ready to help you with all the loving details needed to make your structures sound and beautiful. Make them for yourself or as a gift. Supplies needed can be purchased at Binders right before the workshop.
