Saturday, April 25, 2020

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

(bring a bagged lunch!)

Class Fee $85.00


Participants will create their very own one-of-a-kind journal or sketchbook using the buttonhole stitch method, which is a variation on a long stitch binding. It's a beautiful book structure that is great for beginners and more advanced bookbinding students and offers many options for customization and creativity. The book structure opens completely flat, making it perfect for sketching, writing, or journaling. It uses no glue and features an exposed spine and threads that run along the outside of the cover.  Journals will include up-cycled linen bookcloth covers, decorative paper interiors, linen thread, and acid-free high quality writing/drawing paper.


Robin Canham has been making books for 15 years. She has taken an extensive amount of bookbinding courses organized by the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG) and was the CBBAG Sask Chapter Liaison for 12 years before currently working on the CBBAG National Board.

It is all about the wax! Using their own images participants will learn to let the wax do the work of creating texture on Ginwashi paper. Adding layers of wax and watercolour (no watercolour skills required) we will watch your images come to life. Ironing the wax off at the end will reveal your finished batiks.
 

In 2012 Paige Mortensen came across a tutorial about how to watercolour batik and worked through it. Since then she has been fascinated by the process and it has become her focus. Paige Is a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council, the Artsits’ Workshop group in Saskatoon and in 2018-19 was selected as a participant in the CARFAC Mentorship program.
