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.

New Autumn

Normally, this time of year, I’m in the thick of One of a Kind Show prep, set-up and organizing booth helpers.  It’s all about schlepping my product to the show, planning meals for days and how on earth I’m going to balance the online shop with 11 hour days at the show.  My heart goes out to all my amazing colleagues steeped in that world right now! Today is the opening day of this year’s One of a Kind and many makers are eager to share that part of their souls that is their creations!  Go and say Hi, wander the aisles and see what your local artists, designers and makers have been up to these past few months.  Trust me, it’s worth your time.  I’m going!  As a visitor.

But for me, this year is a bit different. I’ve decided to take a break from that show and focus on smaller shows that spotlight my craft specifically, and the Etsy teams I’m a member of.  And I’m even trying out a new show hosted by one of my most favourite printmaking/paper shops in the city (so exciting!!).

Take a minute and check out the Upcoming Shows section of my website to see where I’ll be selling my wares in person.  I’d love to see you there – stop by and say Hi if you can!

Don’t forget that I’ve got an awesome Cyber Week Sale going in my Etsy shop till November 26, 2018!  Go here for details.

New Bookbinding Class – this December!

My newest bookbinding class is open for registration!  It’s a fun one that I’m really looking forward to, something a little different than I normally teach, but love making for myself.

“The Art & Craft of Tiny Books” is the title of the class, and it’s running this December – less than a month away!
A bit more about the class:

This two-day class explores 4 different mini book structures, each teaching different bookmaking skills.

We’ll re-purpose old books, use fancy papers, and bits and remnants from previous projects. 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.

When: Saturday December 1 – Sunday December 2, 10am – 5pm each day.
Where: CBBAG Bindery, 180 Shaw St., Toronto
