Fabric Covered Books w/ CJ Grossman
New Date! Saturday, Nov 10th 10am–4pm fee: $60
Join us in welcoming back book artist CJ Grossman as she leads this fun and inspiring full-day bookmaking workshop. Participants will learn how to make fabric-covered books with all the delectable fabrics from SCRAP at their fingertips decorating with ribbons, cords, buttons, beads, and anything else they can find. Participants can bring items from home to incorporate in their work such as charms, fabrics, or favorite rubber stamps (for a finishing touch on an inside page). CJ will teach two kinds of stitching for the books: a multiple pamphlet stitch, and a more complex sewing method which will allow for up to 6 signatures of paper. These books can be thick or thin, used for sketchbooks or journals, and are a great gift for the holidays.
C.J. is a mixed media artist and art teacher specializing in Book Arts and unique paper cuts. She exhibits her books, mixed media altars and paper cuts nationally and has taught thousands of adults and children how to make books.
