BOOKMAKING PROGRAMS IN LIBRARIES WILL BE SUSPENDED TEMPORARILY

Mondays

4:30 pm

It is with respect and patience for the current health situation that we are all taking good care of ourselves and each other. It is by how we live and have learned to go about our day to day rituals.  Time is filled by things that we ran out of excuses for not doing.  It's also filled with doing things of necessity and those of fulfillment for ourselves or others like food preparation or art.  I hope that you are well and stay well.

ALL Libraries are closed due to COVID-19 virus

This unique binding has a spine that is made from a folded sheet of paper into sections that holds the folded pages which can easily be removed or replaced.  This makes it easy for writing, drawing or creating on each page as you like after the book is made.  The cover is a heavy weight with a tie closure around a rhinestone brad.

Tues. Jan.21, 2020, "Pop-Up Trio" (Adult Class)

Mondays

4:30 pm

This accordion book contains three unusual pop-ups that are used in books as well as greeting cards.  I have designed them in classic white so they are dramatic to catch the light with the shadows in the folds and embossings of the paper but you can certainly   add color when making your own creations using these techniques again at home.  Variations of the three pop-ups will be explained in class.
