Over this two-day workshop, Leslie will show participants how to solder, stamp and embellish book covers, and how to bind them into a treasured book using Coptic binding - a technique that has been used since the second century. At the same time, she will show students how to coax beautiful prints onto paper for their pages using leaves, heat and water. While we will be dyeing paper during the workshop, Leslie will talk about how the same process can be applied to dyeing fabric, and students will dye a small piece of wool felt to make a bag to hold their book. Skills and handouts provided will arm students to make books of all sizes. Kits will include everything necessary to complete a 6- by 4-inch book similar as shown. Personal photos may be emailed for sizing and printing before the workshop to be used in their covers.

Leslie Marsh, in her own words: From my studio in West Chester, Pennsylvania, I solder and bind together books of various sizes. These books become the archives for thoughts, memories and photographs. My passion for books includes an extensive personal collection of current and antique titles.
