A United Kingdom is based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana.

SECRET BELGIAN BOOKBINDING (For high school students and adults)

Tuesdays, April 25, May 2 and May 9, 6-8 pm

Location: Catamount Outback Artspace

Instructor: Sharon Kenney Biddle

Participants will be creating a hard cover blank book. The two-part binding process involves sewing together the cover boards in a puzzle-like weave, and binding the inside pages by attaching them to the cover. This book uses the dramatic-looking sewing as the centerpiece of its design. Because the pages lie flat, the book is ideal as a travel journal, a garden journal or a sketchbook. All materials and supplies will be provided as well as written directions for the Secret Belgian Binding for each participant to take home.

Class fee: $60. 10% discount for Catamount Arts Members and high school students.
Materials fee of $8 due to the instructor at first class. Limit of 8 participants. Registration deadline is April 21.

High school students should complete the enrollment form after purchasing.

Sharon Biddle has been teaching bookbinding for twenty years. She believes that old-fashioned paper-filled books, especially ones that we make ourselves, are not obsolete or irrelevant. Designing a book and building its contents are worthy, satisfying experiences. A well-made book that is entirely one’s own from cover to cover is a valuable example of imagination and careful craftsmanship.

Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, Frantz recalls the mourning period that follows great national tragedies as seen through the eyes of the war's "lost generation": Anna, a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare, and Adrien, a French veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously in her town, placing flowers on Frantz's grave. Adrien's presence is met with resistance by the small community, yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz.
