Phyllis Jarvinen will be teaching a Long Stitch bookbinding workshop 5 to 9 p.m. on March 15 at Oaks Gallery in Dillsboro.
Cost of the workshop is $30 and includes materials.
In a long stitch binding, the signatures (groups of folded pages) of the book’s text block are stitched directly to the cover material along the spine. The long binding stitches are exposed and the text pages open fully when the book is finished. The exposed stitches on the spine make an embellishment for the structure.
Jarvinen is currently showing artist’s books, paintings and pinhole photographs in Clemson. Her artistic focus is two-dimensional work and includes artist’s books, pinhole photographs and mixed media. She is inspired by landscape and experimentation with process and materials.
