Woven Spine Book w/Lotta Helleberg
Saturday, February 10, 2024

We will use simple painting, drawing, and/or printing techniques to explore themes and narratives for our book. 
The enhanced sheet will be divided into signatures, which will be bound into single pamphlet stitched sections, that in turn will provide the base for our woven spine. 
We will explore adding waxed fabric as optional covers before embarking on the unique and meditative woven binding.
