Pamphlet Journal demo

Daniel Smith offers regular demos, which are often previews for workshops.  I forgot to check the Seattle store’s blog but saw this just a couple days ago on the Facebook page.  DS staffer, Janice Berkebile, offered a demo on making Pamphlet Journals.  This will be followed by an all day (1000-1600) workshop on Sunday, January 11.  It costs $75, payable to her at the door.

The demo was fun and informative.  She gave us several sample papers and here she’s describing the fun of experimenting with them.  She had several of her own beautiful creations on display.

She showed us the tools and how they will be used.

exacto knife, bone folder, awl, pliers, tear bar, book binding needles, waxed linen thread

papers of choice, hinging tissue; not shown: self healing cutting mat

The focus for the workshop will be on making travel journals, small books we can carry at all times.  I plan to take it, even though it conflicts with a convention for which I’ve already registered.    She’ll continue to offer more book making workshops throughout the year.  I look forward to them!

As I left, I noticed Gabi’s most recent book for sale, among others.  I’d not gotten it yet but wanted to find it.  Score!

In center, Gabi’s newest book, The Urban Sketching Handbook: People and Motion (part 2).
