Art Classes

Bookbinding: By appointment.
If you're interested in learning basic bookbinding techniques and uses, please contact me at I'm happy to give you one on one instruction in my home.

Acordian Books- The acordian book is a glued structure and a great foundation for many practical and artistic purposes. The whole thing can be open all at once and laid flat or stood on edge with the folds for support. You can use it to write in, attach photos or memorabilia, add pockets in which to place items, use as an artistic canvas... The possibilities are endless.
Japanese Stab Binding- This is a simple, sewn structure that can use both a limp or stiff binding. It's a great way to quickly make a journal or bind together loose pages that already have content.
Coptic Binding- This is a sewn structure that works best with a stiff binding. It opens flat and is an ideal beginning for a lot of practical and artistic possibilities such as journals, sketch books, or art books.
Star Book using a Coptic Binding- This is a fun structure that looks like a star when stood up while open. It's a great foundation for an artistic style of content. Coptic binding knowledge is a prerequisite to this class.
Travel Journaling- Learn about the concepts behind what makes a great travel journal and explore options that fit your favorite book structure and your own style of embellishment and story telling.
