As you peruse the scheduled activities below, please keep in mind that I am always open to the idea of scheduling customized workshops – in fact, I find it preferable to schedule the topics you want on days you are available.  Costs are dependent on topics, time, and how many folks come along with you.  Contact me at .

Festifall – Saturday, Oct 12, 11 am – 3 pm, in downtown Chapel Hill, NC.  Festifall is an annual celebration that brings the community together around a diverse array of arts experiences.  I am honored to be among the more than 50 local artists, artisans, and crafters participating in this event.  I hope to see you at this fun, experiential, art-focused festival for all ages.  For more info:  http://www.chapelhillfestifall.com/

Book Artistry Inside & Out – Sun – Sat, Dec 8-14, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC.   Combine wooden, marquetry adorned covers with Secret Belgian binding to create unique and festive books ideal for a guest/registry book, journal, or holiday gift-giving.  Marquetry is the art and craft of applying veneer to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures.  The Secret Belgian Binding, which is neither a secret nor Belgian in origin, creates a lovely decorative stitch that will complement the wood/marquetry covers.  After practicing on a small paper-covered book and a sample piece of marquetry, students can expect to create 2 lovely wood-covered books with marquetry design.  To register or for more info:  https://www.folkschool.org

Dos-a-dos (Back-to-Back) Binding – Sun – Sat, Jan 5-11, 2020, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC.  Literally meaning “back-to-back,” this binding style allows two books to be attached sharing a back cover, and several different forms are possible.  Using Coptic stitch for binding, learn all the techniques needed to complete at least two books, and gain knowledge for future projects as well.  These blank books are perfect for sharing and billing with “pairings,” such as love letters of your parents.  Beginners are welcome, and those with experience will enhance their skills.  To register or for more info:  https://www.folkschool.org/

Float What?! – Sun – Sat, Feb 16-22, 2020, at the John C.
