Handmade Books

 In this 4-week series, we will learn how to make books!  Each week we will complete at least one book and will learn:  

  • Tools of the Trade - learn what to use and how to use it to create books.
  • Covers - we will look at a couple of products you can use for covers and will learn to cover our covers
  • Pages - learn to create signatures (sections of pages) and what type of paper works for the intended use



  • Stitches - we will create books with exposed spines so you can see the beautiful stitching. We will use Pamphlet, Straight, French Herringbone, Kettle, and Gathered Stitches to sew our books
  • Embellishments - it's always fun to dress up our. books with beads and other items!

After School Classes


 Weekly after school classes are based around a method of pattern drawing called Zentangle.  It helps develop drawing skills.  We also use other media - black and white ink, collage, kirigami, and we will use our skills to create a mixed media scene in a shadow box in November.

Zentangle Dangles


 ATTENDANCE POLICY:  Any class that is missed without notification will be charged the full rate.  If your child has a commitment come up (band concert, field trip, etc.), if you let me know a week in advance I can adjust the schedule and there will be no charge for that class.  If a child is ill and misses class (and you let me know they are ill that day), the first miss per semester will not be charged, but additional misses will be charged at the full rate.
