Coptic Stitch Class *New Dates!*

CollageIt

I’m so pleased to announce that there is a new date for another class of ‘Deconstructed & Reclaimed: From discarded novel to Coptic journal‘; one of my most popular bookbinding workshops!

In this class, participants will learn how to craft their own hand-bound hardcover journal using discarded books. This workshop will introduce the tools of the trade, materials, and techniques to deconstruct a book and repurpose it into a new journal, using the Coptic stitch to bind the book.

Perfect for beginners or those looking to practice and brush up on their Coptic binding skills, everyone will leave with a finished project.

When: Sunday September 18, 10am – 5pm
Where: Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild, 80 Ward Street, Toronto

Springtime!

Day 164/365DSC_0682_fotor

Springtime has finally arrived!  I’m really looking forward to some outdoor time without the 10 minute scarf/hat/mitts/boots/coats routine.  I’m also looking forward to warm weather and outdoor sketching, and journalling on patios and cafes!

I’ve got some fun springtimey things planned for the blog over the next little while, stay tuned!  In the meantime, it’s okay to start breaking out the spring wardrobe, right?
