If you didn’t attend Cathryn Miller’s workshop on mini star books, you can still learn to make them. Instructions have been posted on the Byopia Press blog.
The classic star (also known as a Lotus Book) can be found here.
A triangular variation can be found here.
The third, and particularly ‘starry’ version, can be found here.
A few interested individuals gathered on Saturday, April 14, in Saskatoon for a mini star book workshop led by Cathryn Miller.
A good time was had by all, and participants each went home with three different star books.
Special thanks to Leona for sharing her studio space with us.
If you would like to see more pictures from the workshop, you can find them here.
Participants in the Bindings Book Swap met in the Town Hall in Davidson on February 17, 2018 to exchange their books. Each individual had prepared a different binding style and a set of instructions on how it was made. Here are just a few quick snapshots from the morning.
After lunch, there was a short show-and-tell session. Works displayed included a large tunnel book by Barbara Mader called Summer Suppers which can be viewed by opening a small set of church doors at one end,
and some interlocked accordions made by participants in Martha Cole’s recent Accordion Workshop.
Do you want to get things together in book form? Or make yourself a custom notebook? Have you ever wondered just how a book is made? In this workshop you will learn the basics of hand binding. We will cover hand tools, materials and adhesives. We will make paperback and hardcover books, glued and sewn books, single sheet and ‘signature’ books and even an accordion book. We will work with both historical and contemporary structures and materials. Everyone with an interest in books is welcome. No prior bookbinding experience necessary.
