Retreat Update & Accordion Workshop in Davidson

Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel our weekend retreat to Manitou Springs due to low enrollment, but the good news is that we’ll try another date for the retreat in the spring, hopefully it will fit into everyone’s schedules better then.

Instead we’re offering a single Sunday in Davidson, on October 2nd because we still want to make some books! Here are the details:

Sunday, Oct. 2nd, 10 am to 3 pm, Davidson Town Hall, Davidson, SK

Cost: members $30, non-members $40, plus a small materials fee payable to the instructor

Workshop Agenda: Cathryn Miller will lead us through making 3(!) different accordion books along side a Hedi Kyle panel book, there will also be a short break for lunch (bring your own bagged lunch or there are a few options around Davidson where you can buy a lunch, ie. Co-Op, A&W, etc.). No experience necessary, this workshop is good for all levels of bookbinders.

    Hi Robin

    I am very new to making books and it would be really helpful for me to see a picture of what the books will look like. that is what did it for me to sign up for the accordion book taught by Lisa Heron! The visuals really help!
