Join us for some papercrafting fun this summer — and learn a little bit of history, too! John Adams had a great library, as did Thomas Jefferson and other prominent people of the time. The books were handbound, from the book binder in the village or town or city. In this workshop, we will make two types of books...a sewn pamphlet–style and a concertina–style book.

Colleen Cavin is a fifth generation Oregonian. She studied calligraphy and book binding in Portland and then armed with a BA in art history and a Fulbright scholarship, she went to England to hone those skills. In 2003 she was elected a Fellow into the prestigious London–based Society of Scribes and Illuminators. She teaches calligraphy and book binding (and their respective histories) in the Portland area.
