November Bookmaking Workshops!

As promised, I am conducting two one-day bookmaking workshops this November.

Saturday, November 12, 2-5pm
Star Tunnel (or Carousel) Book. Carousel books are multi-layered constructions that fold flat like a bound book but can open either full length or into a circle to create a set of “scenes.” These books became popular in the Victorian Era and we’ll be using vintage stamps (H/T Paper Tiger Press) as a key visual element in this construction. No prerequisites! Open to all. SG$40. Limited to 8 students.

Saturday, November 19, 2-5pm
Ribbon-Tied Multi-Signature Journal. Handmade paper and satin ribbons, oh my! In this class, you’ll learn how to sew on tapes and the kettle, or chain, stitch. Prerequisite: my three-part introductory course and/or equivalent experience. SG$40. Limited to 8 students.

Interested? Sign up for my book arts mailing list. An email with information about registration and payment information will be sent to subscribers on Friday, October 14.
