Event Details

We are delighted to host Sara Dismukes, a visiting artist from Alabama with expertise in bookmaking, leatherwork, drawing/painting/printmaking, illustration, and digital media. Sara is strongly connected with heritage craft processes and has taught community workshops at American folkschools since 2012.

In her workshop at FireLoch, Sara will demonstrate traditional bookmaking techniques in the construction of a journal or sketchbook. All participants will engage in a hands on experience, using traditional non-adhesive bindings to make an Italian Longstitch Journal. Participants will leave with their own hand-bound book, along with the skill to adapt the technique in their own studio/ at home.

The true cost of this workshop is $45/pp as we will be supplying all the materials required. We have enabled a pay-what-you-can rate so several tickets are available at $25/pp to reduce the financial barrier to participate for those who need this support. You are welcome to access tickets for $25/pp by taking a full price ticket then using the coupon code “reducedrate” at checkout. If you can spare extra to help provide supplies for others you are invited to bring an extra $5 to the class to donate to Sara to assist with supplies. Thanks for helping us make these workshops accessible!
