At A.J. Smith Elementary School . . .



Recent Commission . . .


I just completed rebinding another copy of "The History of Cayuga County" printed in 1879! This is a fascinating book full of information and drawings of the area, but finding a good intact copy is almost impossible. This one has a lot more life left in it now with a new reinforced vellum spine, dark gray cloth cover and even a ribbon bookmark.

Bookbinding Workshop!


I am offering my bookbinding workshop again! I only do these classes because I enjoy teaching them, and I know you will enjoy it too, not to mention, you get to take home a really nice product at the end.

Make a Journal or Sketchbook is 4 sessions, held from 5:30-7:30  on 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28 at A. J. Smith Elementary School in Union Springs, New York.

In this class you will get to make a blank hard-cover book to take home! We will start by making our own decorative paste papers using acrylic paints and wheat starch. Next we will sew the pages together using thread and traditional bookbinding techniques. Finally, we will construct the covers using our decorated paper, and attach them to our books. At the end you will have a beautiful hand-made book and the knowledge to repeat the process on your own.

Materials Fee of $20 payable to the instructor will be collected during the first session. All materials will be provided. Registration fee is $25.

To sign up, please call or e-mail Lisa Winters (315) 889-7102 x2202
