Raised and Inset Designs in Paper, Fabric and Leather

If you can't make it to the Focus on Book Arts Conference in June but would still like to take my class, I'm offering the class at Provo Art & Frame on Tuesday May 17th. The class is from 6-9pm.

Sign up by emailing me at

We'll go over raised and inset designs in paper, fabric and leather and let you try it out yourself!

The cost is $30 and that includes all the materials for your sample pieces you'll create and keep. The sample pieces can be used as actual book covers.

Below are a few examples of inset and raised designs.
