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)

The Wayzgoose

It’s the 40th anniversary of the Wayzgoose Book Arts Fair!!

Wayzgoose started in 1979 as a small gathering of friends and colleagues that attracted about 300 visitors; since then it has grown into an eagerly awaited annual event with visitors from across Canada, as well as many international visitors.

The 40th Annual Wayzgoose Book Arts Fair will bring together a fascinating group of private press printers, bookbinders, print makers, paper marblers and other artisans to celebrate the art of the hand-made books – presenting their work to the public, renewing connections with colleagues, and sharing their expertise with the next generation of artists and artisans.

**NEW THIS YEAR**  We have invited ten artisans to present a series of interactive demonstrations, which include: papermaking, hand setting type, letterpress printing, book binding, paper marbling and more!

Sound like fun?  One day only – don’t miss it!!

When: Saturday April 28, 2018. 9am – 5pm
Where:  Grimsby Public Art Gallery, 18 Carnegie Lane, Grimsby, Ontario
