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