Secret Belgian Binding Workshop

The 10 book workshop in Logan was going to be the last bookbinding class I taught this year, but upon request, I'll be teaching a couple more before this year is through.

The Secret Belgian Binding Workshop
November 30th, 2012
5:30 pm - 9pm
201 West Center Street, Provo, UT
The studio above Provo Art & Frame

There are five Secret Belgian Binding Books in this photo
(the rest are coptic). These Coptic Stitch and Secret Belgian Binding
Books are from the workshop in Los Angeles back in
May of this year (2012). I love the combinations
of decorative papers that my students used.  

The Secret Belgian Binding has a look similar to a Japanese Stab Bound
but it's a hardbound book that will open really nice with pages
that lay flat.

This binding works well for any purpose: journaling, sketchbooks,
guestbooks, photo albums... it really is a very versatile book and we
discuss the different materials you can use for this book in the
Secret Belgian Binding workshop.

The workshop is November 30th which is a Friday Night. Is Friday night your date night? Bring your husband or wife and they get a $10 discount.

Students need to bring the following tools but all other materials/tools are provided. We bring our stash of papers from around the world for you to choose from . . . you'll love it!

Tool list (all my students get a discount at Provo Art & Frame, just ask for a discount card at the checkout):

Bookbinding Awl 
Xacto Type Craft Knife
Cutting Mat
Metal Edged Ruler
Glue Brush (we recommend a 1" flat brush)

I just discovered your website! I'm wondering if you'll be offering classes in 2013. I'd love to take one or two or three!

I'd love to take your classes but I don't live in the U.S. Would you consider to teach online classes in the future?
