Palette & Page Workshop – Leather Bound Hand Sewn Book

Leather Bound Hand Sewn Book with Patti Paulus
Calligrapher & Book Maker Patti loves making books of all kinds! In this 2 part one-day workshop you will create your own leather bound sketchbook or journal using up-cycled leather and artist quality paper.  No sewing experience required!  Not only will you leave with your own beautiful handmade book, but you will have skills to make more for sharing and giving. Everything you need will be supplied. If you do have a cork-backed metal ruler (at least 12” long) and/or a utility knife or exacto knife with extra blades, please bring them with you.   If you took Patt’s paste paper class, feel free to bring some of your own along – otherwise you’ll have plenty of hers to choose from. The hour in-between will be a lunch break while the glue dries on our covers.  Feel free to bring a lunch or head over to C3ntral Tavern.

Palette & Page Workshop – Ice Dyed Silk Scarf

Ice Dyed Silk Scarf with Sarah Dressler, Textiles Artist – Ice dying creates a one of a kind ephemeral pattern that can’t be repeated, creating unique works of beauty that you can wear. You will be provided with 2 silk scarves and a wide variety of dyes. Each scarf will be graced with subtle shifts in value and stunning contrasts as the ice melts and carries the fiber reactive dye to the silk. The process takes about 24 hours, after the workshop to be complete. The instructor will complete the process, she will steam set the colors, launder and iron each scarf, they will be available to pick up at The Palette & The Page 2 days later. *Optional – You may bring in other items to dye; they must be a natural fiber (cotton, linen, rayon, or silk) and they must be pre-washed. If you would like to dye an article of clothing you already own as long as it is white/pale color, clean and a natural fiber we can work with it.
