October Bookbinding Classes

I am starting two new Bookbinding classes in October that may be of interest to you. Both can be tailored to any level of bookbinding experience so that you'll find your way around the assignments in either of these classes with ease. 

There are daytime and evening classes available and the maximum number of students is kept small, to ensure that all get the attention the need to finish a project in a comfortable and FUN setting. 

Come stitch again with me!


Bookmaking One: Beginning Bookmaking with Anne Elser 
6 sessions | Beginner to Intermediate | Price: $190 | Min.5/Max.8
ARTZ1231 | Tues. Oct. 2 - Nov. 2, 1:30-4pm 

Learn the fundamentals of making books and boxes in this class with a variety of materials and techniques. The anatomy of a book is fascinating, the covers, spine, folios, signatures, fly sheets, headbands and more are all waiting for your heart and hands. Folding, gluing and stitching goes a long way. Make wonderful gifts, sketchbooks and journals, photo albums, etc. The only skills required are a love of paper, attention to detail, patience and a need to share the FUN!

Bookmaking Two: The Opened Book with Anne Elser 
6 sessions | Beginner to Intermediate | Price: $190| Min.5/Max.8
ARTZ1232 | Tues. Oct. 2 - Nov. 2, 6-8:30pm 

If you've taken one or several bookmaking classes and are ready to create content, this class is ideal. Nothing can be more intimidating than a book of blank white pages. We will begin by creating signatures with different types, colors, ages and textures of papers. By alternating these pages with blanks, you'll have a book that wants to be altered further: touched, written in, cut into, stitched, painted and filled with purposeful doodling, writing and drawing. Working at your own pace, your book can be themed or worked loosely. The approach; "treasure hunt" pasting, binding, working and re-working will be an intuitive one. We will make at one book and a box for it to live in.
