Handmade & Bound

If you love handmade books, letterpress, zines, or book arts of any kind, you don't want to miss Handmade & Bound Nashville! Workshops, demonstrations, vendors, and even food trucks will make it a fun day for people of all ages. This is the first year for this event which is to be held at Watkins College of Art, Design, and Film in Nashville, TN. You can get all the details about the festival on the website. The event will kick off on Friday, September 30th with a juried gallery show of artist's book and zines and a screening of the award winning documentary $100 and T-Shirt.

I am so excited to announce that I will be teaching a workshop at Handmade & Bound! The workshop is called Findings & Bindings. Here's the class description:

Our world is awash with papers of all sorts: tattered books with missing pages, junk mail, old maps, brochures, magazines, and so much more. Why not take the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life and turn it into something useful? In the Findings & Bindings workshop we’ll use a discarded book, found papers both old and new, and a simple no-sew binding technique to create a one-of-a-kind handmade journal to house your creative notions. {Ages 8 and up}
All workshops at the event are FREE and all supplies will be provided. The Findings & Bindings workshop will be held at 10 a.m. at the Watkins College of Art, Design, & Film. Hope to see you there!
