Mini Star Book Workshop

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.

Box Making Workshop, Saskatoon

Just a quick reminder: Susan Mills will be teaching a two day box making workshop in Saskatoon, December 2nd and 3rd, 2017.

Build a classic “clamshell” book/portfolio box the first day. This storage box completely encloses the protected item and can be custom fitted to any size. Consisting of 3 basic parts – the lower tray, the upper tray and the outer case – it requires precise measuring and cutting. The boards will be pre-cut allowing for a positive box experience.

On the second day, you will make a hinged case. Japanese books are traditionally stored in hinged cases that fold around one or more volumes. This box is a variation of the book case. It can be made small (jewelry) or large (quilt) and can be made of many materials. Construct a prototype box as a basis for future boxes and cases – and – measure and cut all the boards by hand.

All materials and the use of tools are included.

Susan Mills has been binding books, making boxes, and and teaching these techniques for a quarter century! She is on the faculty of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax.

Dates: Saturday, December 2nd and Sunday, December 3rd, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days

Location: Void Gallery312 Ave B South, Saskatoon, SK, Canada

Instructor: Susan Mills

Cost: $135 + GST and service fees (includes materials)

unnamed

The Lumsden and District Arts Council is hosting an Introductory Paper-Making Weekend with Gerda Osteneck 

Dates: Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Location: River Park Centre, Lumsden, SK

Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days

Gerda says… paper-making is an ancient practice offering infinite possibilities for your art projects! Join me and I’ll teach you how to prepare fibre into pulp, make screens & deckles so you can pull beautiful sheets of paper using a minimum of space and equipment. I’ll show you how to create texture, smooth finish, and coloured papers. I will also demonstrate, and provide instructions for some of the uses for hand made papers.

You may bring recyclables such as dried or fresh flowers, old scraps of paper or fibrous material to incorporate into your paper. Cotton and linen scraps can also be shredded for use.

I will provide the fibre and equipment. I will also bring some simple products to add colours to your papers.

On Saturday we will leap into production after a very brief introduction and will make papers of various kinds and sizes. We can hang the paper to dry overnight.

On Sunday we will finish drying and use some of your papers in small projects to demonstrate some creative uses for handmade paper (hummm, might this involve some book-making maybe?!?)

Bring your lunch each day as we will take a short break mid-way through.

If anyone has a collapsible drying rack, please bring that too.
