New class in the works

Now that my craft shows are done, I can shift my focus towards next year. I’ve wanted to develop a new bookbinding class for Studio Place Arts (SPA), so I spent the last 2 days working on prototypes.

The workshop will focus on 3-section leather bindings requiring no adhesives. I had fun playing around with some leather I picked up at Boisvert’s Motorcycle Apparel & Shoe Repair, right across the street from SPA. That green one on the bottom is a crocodile-embossed cow hide.

I haven’t done much leather binding in the past, but I so enjoyed making the prototypes that I might keep it going.

Messy studio worktable

Although I hope the process won’t be quite so messy the next time…

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
