Things will be a bit different around Sprouts Press this Autumn. I’m taking a break from the One of a Kind Show, and using this time to participate in some of my favourite shows that I couldn’t over the last few years.
For example, BOUND Book Arts Fair! (previously held at OCAD, now at the Arts & Letters Club). As a student, this show was the first time I sold one of my handbound blank books and realized that I could, in fact, make some money as an artist. I remember spending hours making case-bound books to sell for a mere $20 each. I also remember the thrill of selling my first pieces – what joy!
I’d love for you to stop by and say Hi, and witness this new version of the Book Arts Fair (and at the gorgeous Arts & Letters Club!).
When: Sunday December 9, 2018. 11am – 5pm
Where: Arts & Letters Club, 14 Elm St., Toronto (near Yonge & Dundas)

I’ve got a brand new class coming up! It’s for all of you who know the basics of bookbinding and are looking for the next skill to build on what you’ve already learned.
It’s a two day class, and I’ll teach a variation of the Coptic stitch, and some fun contemporary variations of stab bindings. I’ll also be teaching two different styles of hard covers!!
What: Coptic & Stab Bindings: Exposing the Possibilities
When: Saturday September 15 & Sunday September 16, 2018: 10am – 5pm
Where: CBBAG Bindery, 180 Shaw Street, Toronto
