smallerAIY mini book hocus pocus VII 2017

I had such fun making these and you will too. In this class we’ll take the foundations of book making into miniature territory by scaling down and thinking “small”, making a book you can hold in the palm of your hand. I will show you how to make the whole book from scratch using my hand made molds, clay, stamps and embossing tools as well as hand stitched signature pages.

You’ll also learn how to give your book a gilded look or antique leather look and we’ll finish it off with layers of embellishment. If you choose to make your little masterpiece into a necklace bring something to hang it on like beaded chain or ribbon. You will love these little books! Bring your own materials or purchase a kit in class, it’s up to you
