Discover Bookbinding 2019 Poster (1).jpg

Bookbinding 1-Day Sampler

Looking into how to make a book? We don’t do the yarn methods of our kindergarten days… rather, we explore archival materials, glues, cool papers, and proper tools in bookbinding!

Every month, I open my studio for 2 days for a simple binding experience. No experience necessary. You will leave with 3 books that are simple and elegant, as well as gain some foundational knowledge of bookbinding and what’s involved in the craft.

$40 Per Session

Intensive Workshop

Let’s go deep into bookbinding, exploring tools, techniques, and materials, while creating simple books, long stitch bindings, coptic stitch bindings, and traditional glued spine bindings. We will also allow room for discussions on book repair (so find one to tear apart and rebuild), and altered books.

Every session builds on previous sessions, so expect to learn a plethora about this craft! Materials will be provided for the first 3 sessions, and students will be asked to purchase their own materials for last projects. Tool Kits are available, but not required, for purchase.

$240 Fee (payment options available)

I’ll travel…gotta catch up on my audiobooks somehow…

I consider myself a Mobile Arts Educator, and I’m serious about the work I do in rural communities. You can bring me to your town in many fashions, through your art center, school, library, or retreat.

Also, any workshops I present will be found on my website, and I will also help promote it through various tricks and shenanigans that I have up my sleeve! Let’s chat at
