Love Note Advent Book – Saturday, February 5, 2022 (12 Noon – 5:00 PM)

Registration for the previous day’s class How to Write a Love Letter IS NOT necessary to attend this session.

Workshop Description:
This book form utilizes the Coptic style binding to create a bundle of letters as a gift for a chosen recipient. With a little forethought, this book allows you to create the gift of correspondence in advance. It is a gift that gives beyond its initial reception. This book allows you to give thoughtful correspondence on the dates of your choice so it is a gift that gives for as many pages as you want to bind into the book. In this class, 7 envelope “pages” make up the week before Valentine’s Day.

Even after all the correspondences are opened, the book keeps all your notes bound together for your recipient to reminisce as often as they like.

During this one-day class students will create a Love Note Advent Book and go over ideas on creative ways to fill the book with messages and treats to delight the heart.

About the artist: 
Lana Lambert is a resident artist of the Virginia Center for the Book and has been a member since 2010. She studied printmaking and bookmaking at her alma mater, the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C.

It was there that she had her first exposure to letterpress and Japanese book forms. It was soon after that she fell in love with relief printing and learned the art of Japanese woodblock printing.

Lana received the honor of a Folklife Apprenticeship by the Virginia Folk Life Program in 2013 and learned even more under Garrett Queen, program director for the Virginia Center for the Book. She continues her work at the center and is currently focusing on a series of block prints focusing on the Tree of Life.
