Summertime Bookbinding Bonanza

Dear Everyone ~

Treat yourself (or a lucky someone) to a creative holiday in town.
Get a splash of inspiration by diving into bookbinding
or refreshing your drawing delight—
and enjoy a heady interlude of creative camaraderie.

The natural light in the studio is particularly dreamy during the summer.
I'll be here for the entire season & will teach six classes,
including four new binding techniques:
Butterfly stitch / Coptic stitch with case paper cover /
Accordion book / Limp vellum with case paper cover

If a scheduled date isn't good for you,
inquire about taking a private or semiprivate class at your leisure/pleasure.
I'm happy to offer this at only slightly more than the regular class fee.

Our summer schedule at the studio also features calligraphy classes
with Becka Bravo and Julie Wildman,
and drawing classes with Anne Leuck and Emily Franklin.


Looking ahead to September: I'll be teaching in Boston at Studio Carta,
the studio of my dear friend and long-time collaborator Angela Liguori.
(Angela is also our source for the incredible ribbons
we use in our bookbinding & boxmaking classes.
You can buy them at the shop!)

Classes at Bari Zaki Studio are great fun and do exactly what art classes are supposed to do: inspire me to continue learning and creating, and provide the skills to do that. What a wonderful way to develop or build on artistic skill –Janet B., retired English teacher, long-time knitter & novice drawing enthusiast
