This is a Meetup for people interested in the arts, especially Bookbinding, Book Arts, Altered Books, Collage, Assemblage Art, Community/Mail Art, Artist Trading Cards, Paper Crafts, Art Journaling, Mixed Media Art, Photo Workshops, Printmaking, Rubber Stamping, Poetry, Creative Writing, Typography.
We are printmakers, photographers, graphic designers and paper crafters brought together by our passion for bookbinding. We find books the ultimate medium for presenting our work. With book making, you can delve into sculptural work, photo transfers, poetry, typography, found objects - almost anything. We experiment with mixed media, including such materials as fabric, plastic, metal and wood, as well as the more usual paper-crafting techniques with paints and inks.
We are opening our small (and yes, sometimes chaotic) studio to have a work space where we can share our collective skills and passions with you! We will host free events for the casual artist and paid workshops taught by accomplished artisans for those wishing to hone their skills.
Events will include drop-ins, demos, workshops, swaps and challenges. Suggestions and ideas are always welcome. Of course, every swap or challenge ends in a meet n' greet party. Meet-ups hosted in our studio will be small and intimate, because our studio is small and intimate! But don't worry, we will repeat popular meet-ups when we can for people on waiting lists.
