What you'll do
We will gather in my studio/bindery and each make some beautiful paper ornaments, using an Xacto knife, metal templates and decorative papers. Once the pattern is cut into your choice of decorative paper, then the paper is folded along the incisions to reveal the delicate patterns. After punching a hole and threading some ribbon, your ornament is ready to hang. You will leave with as many ornaments you can make in the time provided.
I am an award winning artist, ready to share my passions and show you some bindery techniques and skills to make some art of your own. I apprenticed at a hand bindery in London, UK and have been making books and art every since. Still Water Bindery in Newfane, Vermont, USA is my own art studio. I teach book binding, box making, in addition to making paper, paste papers, and Shibori Indigo dyeing. My work can be found in various private collections around the world.
All instructions, tools and materials will be provided for this workshop.

Where you'll be
We will use Still Water Bindery for your bookbinding workshop. This is located in the back yard, a short walk from the house where you will park. Please note that I usually stand at the work bench while making books, so we usually stand for the whole workshop. If you need to sit during this workshop, there is a stool or a chair for you to use.
