Workshop: Book Bound: Coptic style binding workshop for journals, sketchbooks, and albums with Bonnie Taylor
Sun, May 28, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Sun, May 28, 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
In an increasingly digital world it is important to connect in a tactile way to your thoughts, dreams, doodles, and jots. There is no better way to do achieve this connection than with a beautiful, hand-made book.
Join Bonnie as she teaches you how to make a Coptic style binding technique to create a sketchbook of heavyweight watercolour paper. Bonnie will share many of her tips on how to personalize the pages, covers and materials to create that perfect book you've always longed for, and then one for everyone else you know!
Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Victoria or contact them at 250‑386‑8133 or toll free 1‑800‑524‑6555 to register.
Bonnie is a multi-media artist from Deep Cove with a passion for creating and the occasional inability to focus. With so many fascinating things to make and beautiful ways to create them she spends much of her time experimenting with methods of applying one art to another. To date her favorite combination is by far machine sewing on paper. The combination of textures and dimension thrills a special place in her artsy heart. As a fully hands-on girl she has dabbled in most crafts one can name from sewing and knitting to painting and sculpture.
