Au programme

I will show you various samples of the star books that I have made, as well as some examples of chains & wreathes using the same basic unit. These are small books designed to be hung as ornaments and measure approximately 2" x 2" when closed.

Everyone will start by learning how to fold the papers, making multiple units that will become a book. Then I will show you how to put them all together to make a star. Next we will wrap the hard covers in decorative papers.

The last step is to add ribbon and beads for the closure, and put all the pieces together. The pages can be star hole punched if you wish. Everyone gets to choose colored decorative papers, ribbons & beads for their books.

I will demonstrate each step of the book's construction, and then you will copy my example. Feel free to take photographs of the steps so you can make more books at home.

Everyone will make at least one book. They make great ornaments and handmade gifts. Novice crafters will probably complete one book, but you will have materials to make another book at home, or during your time in the bindery.

All materials and instructions are included. Bookbinding tools we will use include a bone folder, awl, scissors and possibly the board shear. Care and patience is needed to focus when using these sharp tools and folding the papers. Please consider this when signing up children to take this workshop

Welcome to Still Water Bindery. I apprenticed in a small hand book bindery in London, UK 40 years ago and have been binding books ever since. I have taught students from pre-school through graduate college level. I love to teach and share my passions.

This workshop will use traditional bookbinding tools, and techniques that I have been perfecting for decades. We will use my bindery tools and materials to make some beautiful star books.

Come make some art in Vermont!

Destinations

We will use Still Water Bindery for your bookbinding workshop. This is located in the back yard, a short walk from the house where you will park. Please note that I usually stand at the work bench while making books, so we usually stand for the whole workshop. If you need to sit during this workshop, there is a stool or a chair for you to use.

This class was so much fun for me and my crafty 13 year old daughter! Patty was wonderful; so helpful and a delight to work with. We made 5 different projects in the time allowed. Patty was very kind and, giving offering us material to bring home and make even more. Being a single income family I felt the price was very affordable and fair. I choose this class because I felt it was something we could learn to do at home; I was correct. We will be making many more star books. Not only did we make MANY books but she also showed my daughter many things she can put together with the same material. I would highly recommend this for anyone who likes to make beautiful homemade gifts. Again we will definitely be able to make these at home!!!

Fun and unique experience with Patty. Lovely country setting in an art shed on her property. We love the books we made. Very highly recommended.

This was a great 90 minute workshop. The little product I produced is magical, and I will be making many more of them. I just wish I lived closer so I could take some of the other workshops on making books and journals.
