The Bookmaker Collective - DeeDee Catron- Noted Confidential

This class meets on Saturday, October 16 from 4-6pm (PT)/ 7-9pm (ET)  AND Sunday, October 17 from 8am-3pm (PT)/11am-6pm (ET) Please check for your time zone.  All times on our calendar are listed in the Pacific Timezone.

Learn how to embrace the beauty of being imperfect. Create a handheld journal full of pages with varieties in finishes, sizes, spacing, weights and more. The cover & spine create a sturdy structure for more fragile pages to rely on for strength. AND create a bonus miniature accordion style journal which clings beautifully to the front cover of the main journal. 

Saturday evening will be spent chatting about paper types, styles & options. DeeDee's favorite ways to fold & how to quickly layer papers into a beautiful signature.

Sunday morning provides the opportunity for cover decor, bones building & accordion details.


Sunday afternoon will be used to finalize book layouts & pull all the details together for a complete book ready to work in! A little glue & some stitching & BAM! A book. 

DeeDee will be utilizing the use of a standard sewing machine, nothing fancy... a straight stitch & a zigzag stitch, but don't be scared! She has additional binding solutions lined up for demonstration. 
Below is a list of the supplies that will be used in class. 
Note, Basic kits are sold out.  You will need to purchase directly from UmWowStudio for any specific items needed such as the book bones or book cradle.  All the remaining supplies are available open stock in the e-shop

DeeDee Catron

Hiya folks! DeeDee here, I am a Mixed Media Artist residing in Las Vegas, NV. I have been an artist my entire life. The term "Mixed Media" was coined for me. I adore all mediums & have an affinity for bold patterns & vintage texts. I am the Owner & Creative Director of UmWowStudio, a mixed media supply manufacturer & love designing amazing products for talented artists to use! I am also {very honored to be} a worldwide teacher, both online & in person. Inspiring others makes my soul happy & keeps my heart full. There's nothing quite like bonding with someone over an art supply, tool, or piece. So, lets collect... let's connect... let's make some books... & be part of #thebookmakercollective! ♥
