I’m teaching at FOBA next year!
I am thrilled to announce that I will be teaching a class at the 2019 Focus on Book Arts conference! Now that they’ve posted sneak peeks on their website and I see myself there (!!!), I finally feel comfortable giving the scoop.
Here’s the announcement (I just had to take a screenshot):
This will be my second time teaching at FOBA. The idea for this workshop actually came out of a discussion that happened in my 2017 workshop.
Here are the details:
Need that finishing touch for your journal? I’ve got you covered!
Consider this workshop the equivalent of a Closure Dressy Bessy. First you’ll complete a set of two soft cover, leather books each with a different variation of the long stitch binding. Then comes the fun part – you’ll experiment with a variety of ways to secure those books. You’ll explore ways to use buttons, leather straps, sticks, and metal hardware to create up to 5 closures per book (as time allows).
Bring your own embellishments (buttons, ribbons, etc.) that you’d like to use for closures – there will be time for discussion and problem-solving as a group.
You’ll leave this workshop with two books measuring 9.5″ x 6.5″, along with a detailed handout and resource list for all materials used.
Here are pictures of the finished books (colors will vary in the workshop kits):
Registration for the conference will open in March 2019. Keep your eyes glued on the FOBA website for more details as they become available.
I hope to see you there!
