April 2019-Member Workshop: Bookbinding with Penny Arrowood

On March 30, CMMAG's held its first member workshop of 2019.  Penny Arrowood, co-founder of Arrowood Paper Arts and Your Creative Connection, taught us the basics of bookmaking (Did you know that you shouldn't call them holes?  They are stations!)
Using three strips of Stonehenge cotton paper with a gorgeous deckle edge, we learned how to create a lovely book complete with wrap-around cover and decorative binding.

A nice surprise was that we got to decorate our covers using stencils and Marabu Art Sprays.

Penny always makes the process fun and educational.

Some even got ambitious and made extra, smaller books from the leftover paper!

We had a great time, and our books looked amazing!

Our next member workshop is Alcohol Ink Blooms on May 11 at Chavis.  Click here for more details.
