The Book Box
In this class we’ll make a drop-side box that looks like a half-bound cased book. It will have a neodyne magnet closure and will be covered in beautiful decorative papers with a bookcloth “spine”. Interior partitions will also be added. 
This is a great box for a beginner box-maker!

Coptic With Content
Create a beautiful book using the coptic stitch as the binding...A hard cover and lots of beautiful papers including your own images, letter scraps, and paper mementos go into this book.. Or maybe add a poem or story..a bit of collage or sketches. In this class we'll make more than blank, pretty journals… We'll make books that are practically alive with their own personality.
Day class: Mon & Tues. Aug. 8-9, 10-4pm; Cost $130

Happily Ever After, before coptic binding... stories of the past as letters, prints, papers, and photo transfers...
In the shadow of the Raleigh skyline...and beside the wheels of progress...
