Stamped Nature Bound - Taos, New Mexico

Stamped Nature Bound
June 3 - 4, 2017
Studio of Leighanna Light
Taos, New Mexico

$285 plus $25 kit fee
Lunch, drinks and snacks are included


Over this two-day workshop, I will show you how I solder, stamp and embellish book covers and how to bind them into a treasured tome using Coptic binding — a technique that has been used since the second century. At the same time, I will show you how to coax beautiful prints onto paper that will become pages in your book using leaves, heat and water. Although we will be dyeing paper during the workshop, I will talk about how the same process can be applied to dyeing fabric, and you will dye a small piece of wool felt to make a bag to hold your book.

Students should bring the following:

Small cutting mat
Ultra fine Sharpie**
Ball of household string**
Safety glasses **

**These items are necessary to complete the book, but, if people are willing to share, we will have some for students' use. Hotlinks take you to online shopping and examples.
