"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be beautiful or believe to be useful."
—William Morris

Whether you choose to use recycled household materials or museum-quality archival supplies, this little gem of a book checks both boxes: something uniquely beautiful for everyday use. And it can be magical, with just a few simple tools and your imagination.

In our workshop, you will enjoy a slide presentation full of ideas and inspiration, followed by a step-by-step demonstration and make-along for one book. Included are detailed explanations of myriad ways to customize plain and not-so-plain papers for covers and liners by using your handwriting, calligraphy, or other art techniques. I will display and discuss a variety of closure options. Together with your finished project, you will take away a plethora of possibilities and resources to ignite your imagination and experience joy in the making for fun and profit.

Funky or sophisticated, playful or all-business, this simple book concept is an excellent make-and-take project, Girls’ night or Scout activity, family fun project, craft fair item, event favor, or holiday gift. Be warned: once you get the hang of it, it's addictive!

No experience necessary.
