February - Making a Woven Book
One of our members, Jo, visited us from her home away from home on the Island to lead us through creating a small book.
The book may be small but that doesn't mean small in effort and steps! The supply list alone was daunting but Jo had kits available for anyone who didn't want to cut 56 - ¼" strips of paper!
For the first hour or so we wove the paper strips to make different patterns. This was the most difficult part of the project. You have to make sure your weaving is tight.
We used proper mill board for our covers, Arches text wove for the text block, book cloth for the spine and only cheated by using double sided tape.
It was an entertaining afternoon! Thanks Jo!
