Workshop description ~

This workshop will explore the techniques of creating and filling a hand bound book.Utilizing a binding that has withstood the test of time with its elegance, flexibility and strength, we will first bind a book of fine papers, translucent mica sheets. We will than cut, hammer, glue, burn, saw, paint and sew back into the book creating niches, alcoves and secret spaces to house and protect treasures, images and words.The workshop will introduce students to the safe use of a variety power and hand tools.Participants will learn to work with mica using both the natural and manmade forms of this material becoming familiar with the in and outs of the unique characteristics of mica.
