Instructor: Sharon Kenney Biddle

There is nothing quite like the look and feel of a hand-bound book. In this three session class, students will splash around with water-based paint to make a visually exciting cover for their book. The cover is designed to weave together without messy glue and is easier than it looks. Next, participants will learn how to make a crossed structure binding with threads in brilliant or subtle colors. The finished book will make a wonderful journal, sketchbook, or poetry book…or perhaps a gift for Mothers’ Day!

Class fee: $65 (10% discount for Catamount Arts members and high school students) plus an $8 materials fee to be paid on the first day of class to the instructor. Scholarship funds are available – please contact Anne Campbell at 802-748-2600 ext. 109 to discuss this option.
