Chinese Sewing Box Book
Saturday, March 26, 10am to 3pm
Ridgewood Clubhouse, S. Burlington, VT

 

A book structure created by the amazing Hedi Kyle--made entirely of folded boxes and enclosures based on paper wallets, and used to store sewing supplies—an origami lovers’ dream! Many things can be housed in this finished structure: surprises, stories, drawings, prints. Students will leave one finished book, a pattern to make another, and ideas for lots more!

 

$75 includes materials.

 

Please contact Marcia Vogler at marciavogler@gmavt.net                  to register and for more information.

The Record Book and French Link Binding!
Saturday, April 16, 10-1 and 3-6
JustAJar Press, Marietta, OH
 

The Record Book

10am - 1pm A new way to store and present your records! This structure is build entirely out of cut and folded pockets, stacked upon each other to build up the spine. Another fabulous Hedi Kyle structure, this book will provide you many options for storing photos, ephemera, prints, letters, history, and low-relief objects.

$60

 

French Link Binding

3pm - 6pm A classic binding used in many traditional case-bound books, this stitch is actually too lovely to hide away. We'll sew up our text blocks, on tapes, and then make covers out of alternative materials, leaving the binding exposed. This binding can be translated conservatively or sculpturally--and is very simple to learn.

$70

Take both for $115!
