Summer Books Classes

New classes in bookarts I'll be teaching for the summer start next week! The costs are crazy cheap, class size is small, and we have a great time. Please sign up soon, as I'm beginning to pack all the goodies for class... and classes get canceled if enrollment is too small, alas!
 Starting May 15 at Pullen Art Center...
Book in a Box

A Book in a Box: We’ll make a flat back book that slips into it’s own drop-top box case. This class covers cutting and covering bookboard, binding using the french-link/kettle stitch, and adhering 
the textblock into the cover casing. This is a lovely book for journals, storybooks, or very special celebratory registration books. All levels. Supply fee of $35-40 payable to instructor at first class. 
Four Mondays, May 15- June 5. 6:30-9:30. 
Call Pullen Art Center at 919-996-6126 for registration information.

Starting June 4 at Cary Art Center...

Movable Books! Books that pop-out, wave, fold, and transform are the emphasis of this class. The dynamics of how two-dimensional planes can become 3, the subtleties of hidden spaces, and a lot of silliness are the main themes of this class. Please bring your own ephemera and words to incorporate into your books and to share with your classmates. Three or more books. An additional $15-20 studio fee is payable to the instructor at the first class. Four Mondays, June 4-25, 7-9:30 Call Cary Art Center 919-469-4069 for registration information.
