Sunday Workshop Series

Anouncing a new Sunday Workshop Series starting this autumn! These are in-person workshops in Halifax, Nova Scotia. If you're looking for a quick fix of book and paper arts, then you might be interested in these upcoming workshops. Each is just two hours on a Sunday afternoon.

Box Accordion: This is a fun structure that can easily be expanded in length, incorporating more and more boxes. This type of accordion book can be used as an artist's book structure, as a display feature, etc.
Sold out.

Star Book: This structure is versatile and can be modified as a tunnel book or carousel book, which are both useful options for artist's books. This structure also works well as a unique photo album that can do double duty as an attractive photo display.
Sold out.

Christmas Book: Miniature book ornaments, incorporating beautiful Japanese papers and pages of Christmas music, bound using a modified drum leaf technique.
Sold out.

There will also be some more in-depth bookbinding workshops at the Centre for Craft this fall. Schedule to be announced soon.

Switching online sales platform

Big news! I have a new website for selling my bookbinding supplies! I've been selling supplies online for a while, but the online sales platform that I was using has become incresingly problematic and expensive. So, I took a plunge and set up the shop through Sellfy. Just click the "Shop for Supplies" link above.

I really like the Sellfy platform so far. I did some testdrives with other online store options before I settled on this one, and so far, it's working nicely. I will have to maintain both sites for a while, but hopefully I can consolidate them at some point.

As before, I am optimmizing the products and shipping for Canadian customers but I do also accept orders from USA. Right now, you can use the coupon code 2022Final15 and get 15% off orders before December 31st, whoot!
