Reminder: Summer Classes in Bookbinding and Journaling

June 30, 2011

See the post for complete details.

Saturday, July 9 and Sunday, July 10, 2011 I am teaching two book arts classes (which can be taken together as a two-day workshop for a tuition discount). You can read about the classes, Soft-cover Sketchbooks in a Flash, and Scavenger Hunt Journaling here. There is still space in each class. I look forward to seeing you for these book arts adventures.

    Go easy on my Mama, Roz. She’s new to this book art stuff!

    Liz, no worries. To paraphrase one of Tom Hank’s film characters: “there’s no crying in bookbinding.”

    Now if she had signed up for a tracking class it would be another matter!

    Of course I might have to subject your mother to an intensive questionnaire to find out more about YOU! Oh, wait I get it that would probably fall under the category of “go easy” on her! Drat.

    It would be great if you had some kind of book binding workshop on-line for those of us who are unfortunate enough not to live near you. I made my first journal with duck tape, which might offend your sensibilities, but I took it to a summer camp on the coast and USED IT UP!! I also covered the cover with clear packing tape to keep water off it. I had a lot of fun making it (from a tutorial by Diana Trout) and am planning to make another, but it would be nice to make an upgraded version (now that I don’t have to worry about spray). I took my pentel pocket brush WHICH I LOVE and the Niji waterbrush, which I learned how to use. Thanks for all the information about these things – it has really helped me find tools that work for me!

    LizzieBo, I love duct tape!!!! I am always making books out of odd things like plastic and bits of stuff, even waterproof paper. I even taught a class where we used Tent tape!!! I think people need to use what’s at hand to make a book that’s usable! That’s all that matters. I happen to enjoy making books with paper I’ve painted myself hence the way I do my main books. I hope someday there will be a book of my methods and ideas, with step-by-step photos that will be useful to far-flung folks.

    I’m glad you’re loving the PPBP. It is the best. I stayed up late last night playing with mine because it was calling to me and I hadn’t had a chance to draw yet. They are wonderful!
