[BKARTS] Byzantinie Sewing Workshop in Portland, OR

Presented by the Northwest Chapter of the Guild of

Byzantine Sewing with Leather Covered Boards

This historical book structure features a handsome
sewing pattern, which forms a thick chain across the
spine of the book. The book is sewn in two parts: one
half of the sections are sewn to the front cover using
two needles while the remaining sections are sewn to
the back cover. Then the two parts are joined together
in the middle. The covers will exhibit an artistic
design with decoration techniques freely borrowed from
the Late Coptic period. These techniques include
vellum lacing, inlays and blind tooling, all of which
are done prior to adhering the leather to wooden
boards. Participants will first sample the techniques
before using them on their own designs. To finish the
book, a slit braid leather strap with fore-edge peg
will be attached.

Instructor:  Bonnie Stahlecker's books have been
described as "image condensed as object." Her recent
work often uses her poetry in combination with
full-page intaglio images. While the early work was
more sculptural, the current books are bound
traditionally, yet with contemporary quirks. Her work
has been exhibited in numerous national and
international exhibitions. Her work is in many
publications, including "The Penland Book of Handmade
Books." Bonnie has a Master of Fine Arts degree from
the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a Bachelor of
Fine Arts degree from the University of South Dakota,
