17C253A - Spiral Bound Journals
August 25, 2017
Using some basic bookbinding techniques, we can bind at least three different spiral bound journals in this half day class. We will use both bookboard
and matboard, covered and colored with beautiful papers and embellished with all kinds of wonderful things, from ribbons to charms to various findings.
There are so many variations, as many as there are creators of these wonderful books - use them for dream journals, gratitude journals, scrapbooks, travel
memories and sketches, photo albums, or guestbooks for weddings and anniversaries. Unlimited possibilities!
Level: Novice and above

Nancy Akerly is a Door County paper
artist who has taught paper arts throughout the Midwestern United States, in Germany and Taiwan. When she first created her business, Liberty Grove Paper
Arts, she taught mainly Origami and Box Making, or Cartonnage. That soon led to picking up a life long enthusiasm for bookbinding and book arts - which
led to paper marbling and paste paper to use in the creation of her boxes and books. She has taught at Rhinelander School of the Arts, The Clearing, Peninsula
Art School, The Miller Art Museum, Sievers Fiber Art School, and for numerous Art Guilds and private groups throughout the Midwest. Her work has been shown
in numerous galleries, including the Hardy Gallery, and The Miller Art Museum but her main love is teaching others to create their own masterpiece of functional
art. And her teaching philosophy is "If we are not having fun, we're doing it wrong!"
