Learn Dowel Spine Portfolio with the Book Arts Guild of VT

At August’s meeting of the Book Arts Guild of Vermont, I will teach the Dowel Spine Portfolio, a structure created by Peter Thomas. It’s a non-adhesive structure that requires few tools and materials. I learned this structure in a class I took with Peter at the Focus on Book Arts conference.

The first book we’ll make will be of a size that can accommodate a standard business card. The second book is a version of the structure that I adapted to fit a CD.

Here are the specifics:

Date: Wednesday, August 5, 2009
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Firehouse Gallery
Address: 135 Church Street, Burlington, VT

Tools to bring with you (I will bring extra tools to the workshop, so don’t worry if you don’t have them):

  • Bonefolder
  • X-acto knife
  • Cutting mat
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

I look forward to seeing you there!

Hi Brea!

It was a lot of fun. I can’t believe how many people showed up – 23! I’ll be writing a blog post about the workshop in the next couple of days.


So what do you think? I'd love to know!
