Instructor: Rene Morford
Receive one on one instructions for book binding and journal making. There is a Spring and Fall class with each class doing a different bookbinding project. Projects vary from cloth covered books, to leather covered to beer carton journals.
Very Sharp tools and long attention spans are used and needed for this class – so, no one under 16 is allowed to participate. This class is about 3 to 3 ½ hours long. We will be making one beer journal in class. You can make many more after you’ve learned how!
Teachers have beer cartons you can use. If you wish to bring your own favorite six pack bottle carton, you may do so! Teachers will have all other supplies you need!.
Join others as they gather in the Villages of Van Buren to learn from the resident artisans in their personal studios. Spend a weekend plein air painting along the Des Moines River, or step back in time as you throw bowls in a Pottery Shop. The inspiring and relaxing atmosphere of scenic Van Buren County, Iowa is, and will continue to be, a haven for creative beings.
