Join the Book Arts Roundtable at the Baird for a little holiday magic on
Saturday December 10
Shop, Meet, Create and Greet During This One Day Only Sale
At the Baird Arts Holiday Workshops
11:00 – 4:00
What a perfect way to meet the artists and ask questions about their work. The informal relaxed atmosphere in the gallery will take some of the stress out of the shopping experience and help us all to feel the real spirit of giving and sharing. Members of the BAR will be selling their handmade books, journals, cards, prints, handmade paste papers, marbled papers, paper art and more in the Pierro Gallery at the Baird.
Many of our artist members are professional in other areas, so you will see exquisite beaded jewelry, baskets, clothing with hand printed images, wonderful little books and paper items to fit all occasions.
Album making workshop for adults: 2:00 – 2:45 ( you must register for both workshops)
While you are in the gallery, take some time to sit and learn to make an album, perfect for gift giving. All materials will be supplied to make this 6” x 6” book with pockets to hold a page of poetry, a collection of photographs for a relative or friend or a record of memories.
Great Things come in Small Packages: Accordion Book Workshop: 3:00 – 3:45
This little 3” x 3” book is a treasure. Learn to fold a strip of paper into a perfect accordion and then embellish the pages with seasonal rubber stamps, nature inspired stamps etc. Write your text with pen or colored pencil. Or use paper punches and make a counting book for the little one on your shopping list. You can design the strip first and then fold for a more serendipitous feel as you turn the pages. Finish it with a hard cover and ribbon.
The Baird Arts Holiday Workshops start at 12:00. Go to the Baird site to register for all workshops.
The Book Arts Roundtable Sale and More starts at 11:00 in the Pierro Gallery.

Here you can see some of the books that were made. You can't really appreciate them until you can hold them in your hand, though!
Here's the group photo with our books ready to be sewn.
A very nice bonus of the workshop was the opportunity to buy handmade tools and mica in many forms. The "shopping bazaar" was a popular station throughout the three days.
And here we are in the downstairs room at the Baird working away. Dan was an excellent instructor and nudged us along, with humor, to get our work completed.
