  • Sat, Mar 25, 2017, 10-4pm, Making a Star Book with Suzanne Cannon. This amazing book will delight any view. The Star book uses ties to hold it closed, but opens up completely to a spectacular star shape when folded back on itself. Multiple layers and colours give this book unlimited opportunities for decoration. In this one day workshop, students will make one star book. They will also come away with ideas for variations on this structure. $100 for CBBAG members. $120 for non members. To register, please send us an email. Your payment will reserve a spot in class. Registration closes end of day Saturday, March 18.
  • Sat, Sep/Oct __, 2017, Tacket Bookbinding in Leather with Suzan Lee. Learn to make a leather bound book using an historical thread wrapping technique that’s attributed to 101-200 AD in Egypt. This technique results in “thread coils” or sometimes described as “sausages”. Intrigued? Registration details to follow.
