I have taught classes at the John C. Campbell Folk School and at the Charleston Book Union. I teach book binding, box making, marbling, book repair and restoration. Below is my teaching schedule for this year. New dates are being added all the time, so check back for current updates.
I also give lessons to students on an individual basis in my own bindery in Asheville, N.C. Contact me if you'd like to discuss private lessons.
