Sylva resident to teach art of bookbinding

Written by 

Phyllis Jarvinen of Sylva will demonstrate and teach a mini-workshop on book arts and book binding at the Art League of the Smokies meeting Jan. 6.

The workshop will start at 6:15 p.m. in the lobby of Swain County Center for the Arts in Bryson City.

Participants will follow the step-by-step process to make a slim hardbound book during this program. Participants can bring old maps, pretty papers or photos to use for endsheets or covers if desired. The event is free and open to the public.

Jarvinen is an award-winning artist with exhibitions at Western Carolina University and the Oconaluftee Institute for Cultural Arts this past year. She will head to Florida next year to serve as artist in residence at the Everglades National Park.
