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.

BINDING BOOKS-TRADITIONS AND MORE

Using paper, thread, boards, cloth and archival glue, students will create their own beautiful blank books.

Three book binding styles will be taught, Traditional Case Binding, Secret Belgian Binding and Concertina binding.

Students will also learn to transform their own chosen cloth into book cloth to use on their books.

In a 5 day class, students will be able to make 3-7 books.

Beginners and experienced binders are welcome.
