LEATHER BOUND TINY BOOK

Tiny books are fun to make and perfect to give as gifts. At the October NORBAG workshop Kathy Warren will teach a variation of the Booklaces course taught by Doris Arndt at the Newport Paper and Book Arts Festival in 2018. The tiny books are easy to make, but the jewelry-making part can be a little more daunting. Kathy will demonstrate the bookbinding, and after books are completed she will help those who want to go on to make necklaces. She will have pliers, jump rings, beads, ribbon, wire, yarn and bangles available. If you have any of these items you would like to bring to enhance your own "booklace" please feel free to bring them. Kathy will provide: pre-cut leather in several colors, pre-cut board, pre-cut signatures, text weight decorative papers for covers, jigs and information sheets. The finished books will be 1 1/2" x 2" in size.
