Miniatures are all the craze right now! And I mean MINI! We will start at 2″ x 1.5″ then go to 1.5″ x 1″ and if you are brave even 1″ x 7/8″. This workshop will use old book pages (or blank if you wish) and make them into distressed mini books you can decorate. The main book structure will be sewn sections, case bound, endbands, leather covered and blind tooled. After that you can make whatever structure you want. The instructor will lead you along individually on your project. Materials will be supplied but you can always bring your own stash. You will go home with as many tiny books as you can make and the knowledge on how to make more. They are very addictive!! No previous experience necessary.
