Would you love to join me and make
your own beautiful book
bound together with a vintage hinge
and talisman full of colors,
textures, and patterns?
We will gather together at
a beautiful studio nestled in the hills outside of San Diego, California.
On the first day we will enjoy different ways to cover the page edges, first with pan pastels and paints, and then with vintage silk. We will also make beads to use on our book spines.
During the second day we will explore stitching, attaching, and collaging simple details on your pages, finally putting your book together in a unique and easy process. The cover will be made out of an antique door hinge! I’ll provide the vintage silks and antique door hinges!
You will love these innovative techniques!
And on the third day we will make our Autumn Talisman out of found objects. Then we’ll create a beautiful felt bag to house and protect both our books and our talismans.
Your will go home with your own handmade creations that together tell the story of the colors, textures and patterns that you love, the things you are grateful for, and memories of a nourishing gathering of like souls. And of course you can keep making books, bags, talismans, beads, and more with the techniques you develop in our time together!
