Mark your calendars for the first Northwoods Book Arts Guild meeting of 2016!  On January 21st, NBG members and guests will hear the latest news of upcoming NBG events and workshops, renew their annual memberships, participate in the “Calendars” book exchange (0ptional), and will assemble their own personal “Northwoods Notebook”!


NBG Meeting Activity: Northwoods Notebooks with Corlis Taylor

Attendees of the January 21, 2016 NBG meeting will construct and bind a custom 7.25 x 4.5″ notebook!  This exquisite one-of-a-kind notebook will be perfect for holding NBG meeting and workshop notes, tracking progress on your New Year’s resolutions, sketching ideas for future projects, or collaging with artful papers and images from your stash.

A variety of decorative and repurposed papers will be provided to use as the notebook pages.  Supplied paper will vary in both size and purpose, e.g. envelopes & pockets, blank watercolor, odds and ends donated from personal stashes, etc.

The notebooks will be bound with 1″ spiral coils (coils will be provided too!), and Participants are encouraged to bring a decorated file folder, painted (or plain) watercolor paper, or any heavy cardstock paper to be used as the front and back cover.  We will cut covers to size and punch the covers’ holes at the meeting.

Please bring the following to the meeting:

Cutting mat, X-Acto knife, ruler, bone folder
Material, uncut, for your covers (optional, but encouraged)
