Jen Shaffer Returns for more Bookbinding Saturday December 11!

 I am pleased to announce that Jen Shaffer's October workshops were such a success, that she will return to Red Bow to teach two more bookbinding workshops in December. To sign up please call or email Red Bow Studio.

Accordion Fold Albums!

Create 2 photo albums! In this workshop you will learn how to cover bookboards
with book cloth, and how ribbon placement can change the page count and
binding of an accordion fold album. You will have a variety of bookcloth
colors and and ribbons to chose from. We'll make a large photo album that
can hold 8 4x6 photos (black paper used within), and a mini photo album that
can hold 8 photo-booth sized photos.

Cost: $40 per person
Time: 2 hours (10am-noon)

 Stab-bound Journals!

In this workshop you will create an over-size journal (9-1/2 x 12-1/2 inches) that can
be used as a sketch book, and we'll also make a smaller journal (6 x 4
inches). We¹ll be binding both books using the centuries-old Japanese stab
binding technique (it¹s not as violent as it sounds!). Multiple punching
guides and thread will be provided for both journals, allowing you to create
books that are completely you. The over-size journal covers will be
cardstock, which will be available in a variety of colors, and the interior
pages will be white (30 pages total). The smaller journal covers will be
made with handmade paper, made in Minnesota by Cave Paper, and the interior
pages are off-white (25 pages). Additional journal kits will be available
for purchase after the workshop.

Cost:         $40 per person
Time:         3 hours (2-5pm)
