$ 150  

Learn to make three fun scroll books: basic, whirlwind and sculptural. The basic scroll book is made with a long sheet of decorated paper bound at one end with a dowel or branch. After the finished book is rolled up, a ribbon attached to one end ties the pages together.
The Whirlwind book binding style was developed in ancient China. We’ll cut various lengths of paper—short, medium, long. The decorated sheets will be wrapped around a stick and stitched together. This scroll can hang on a wall with graceful descending rolls of various patterns, bound into book covers or can roll up with a ribbon tie. The third book is a dynamic sculptural book with pages turned under and glued down to create 3-D surfaces to decorate with collage cut-outs of colorful flowers, birds, butterflies, wavy patterns, or rows of rainbow colors. Bring your creative ideas and special papers.

$15 kit fee payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
long pieces of Japanese mulberry paper to decorate, a book to glue, shape and |
decorate, sponges, paints, needle, thread, ribbon, wood twigs for binding, decorative
papers to collage onto the rolled pages as well as rubber stamps, ink pad and markers to share.

an optional portable paint kit, optional sponges, brushes or markers (I will supply basic paint & sponges), glue stick, ruler, pencil, eraser, liquid glue (PVA or Elmer’s) with a spout for easy application, scissors, bone folder, notebook and any decorative, shiny, glittery papers to embellish your beautiful book!
