I will show you various samples of star books that I have made, as well as some examples of chains & wreathes using the same basic unit. Everyone will start by learning how to fold the papers, making multiple units that will become a book. Then I will show you how to put them all together to make a star. Next we will wrap the hard covers in decorative papers. The last step is to add ribbon and beads for the closure, and put all the pieces together. The pages can be star hole punched if you wish. Everyone gets to choose colored decorative papers, ribbons & beads for their books. I will demonstrate each step of the book's construction, and then you will copy my example. Feel free to take photographs of the steps so you can make more books at home. Everyone will make at least one book. You are then free to make more star books in the time remaining. They make great ornaments and handmade gifts. All materials and instructions are included. Bookbinding tools we will use include a bone folder, awl, scissors and possibly the board shear. Care and patience is needed to focus when using these sharp tools. Please consider this when signing up children to take this workshop.
Materials and tools
Welcome to Still Water Bindery. I apprenticed in a small hand book bindery in London, UK 40 years ago and have been binding books ever since. I have taught students from pre-school through graduate college level. I love to teach and share my passions. This workshop will use traditional bookbinding tools, and techniques that I have been perfecting for decades. We will use my bindery tools and materials to make some beautiful star books. Come make some art in Vermont!

We will use Still Water Bindery for your bookbinding workshop. This is located in the back yard, a short walk from the house where you will park. Please note that I usually stand at the work bench while making books, so we usually stand for the whole workshop. If you need to sit during this workshop, there is a stool or a chair for you to use.
