The Art & Craft of Tiny Books: A Workshop

Next weekend I’m debuting a brand new bookbinding class: The Art & Craft of Tiny Books.  There are still a few spaces so I wanted to invite you to join in the fun!  

It’s a two day class, and we’ll explore 4 different structures, each one teaching different bookmaking skills.  We’ll re-purpose old books, use fancy papers, and bits and remnants from previous projects.  

Of course, this means that there will be time to play with materials and personalize your set of books, making them perfect for gifting or keeping.

Everyone will leave with at least 4 finished mini books, but likely more as time permits.

If I’ve piqued your interest, here are the details you need:

When: Saturday & Sunday December 1 & 2, 2018 (10am – 5pm both days)
Where: CBBAG Bindery, 180 Shaw St.

For more information & to register, please go here.

*Please note that registration closes Wednesday at 11:59pm.

BOUND Book Arts Fair

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)
