Join us on ZOOM for the July Program Meeting.This will be the first time we’ve tried this format for a program meeting and we are excited to provide this opportunity for our NBG community.
In light of recent, ever-changing concerns about the coronavirus, the NBG Board has decided to cancel our March 21 Program Meeting and the March 28 Flag Book Workshop.
NBG is launching two new projects at this program meeting. Each project guides participating members to meet challenges that encompass a range of bookmaking activities, from writing and layout design to letterpress printing and bookbinding.
The Guild’s Annual Meeting is this coming Sunday, November 17, 1-3pm. There will be election of officers, news of upcoming projects, and refreshments, of course, but some might say the highlight is the AUCTION, mostly silent, offering a vast array of art, bookart-related items, and some real, honest funky surprises!
Although the accordion fold is not a complicated structure, Hedi Kyle, in her book, “The Art of the Fold,” focuses on it for its versatility and endless possibilities. At our September meeting, Connie Stricks will help us explore how to use this fold to create some very special structures.
Did you know you can create your own book cloth? Come to the upcoming NBG meeting to learn how simple muslin can be transformed into book cloth using methyl cellulose to stabilize the fabric, and acrylic washes, Sumi ink, and permanent markers to add color and pattern.
Join us at the January meeting to learn about historical letterlocking and then create your own letterlocked Valentine to send to your special someone.
Please join us on Sunday, November 11, from 1-3:00pm, for a celebratory Annual Meeting!
Join the NBG on September 9th to create cards using natural materials guided by Connie and Susan.
