In my studio in beautiful Montpelier, Vermont you will find me hand-binding journals, photo albums, and guest books using traditional bookbinding techniques. I also design and create custom invitations and announcements. I welcome and enjoy custom work - I want to help you achieve your vision.

I work with handmade papers and materials from both local artisans and from around the world. I have a special interest in using "green" materials that contain recycled content. I strive to create books that maintain the beauty and integrity of the materials with which I work. All of the materials I use are acid-free to ensure the longevity of your photos.

In addition to my handmade work, I am also able to do basic book repairs.

My work is available for purchase at a number of retail locations throughout Vermont, as well as on Etsy.

I LOVE to teach.

I offer a range of bookbinding workshops appropriate for either students or teachers. I have worked in both traditional and non-traditional educational settings, art centers, and community festivals. Workshops are easily adapted to make them accessible to a variety of populations.

My goal is to provide students with as much information and guidance as possible, while at the same time offering them the freedom to explore and experiment. In my classes, I want students to feel both empowered and inspired by the work.

All of my bookbinding workshops provide the participants with a basic knowledge of bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials used. Unless noted, workshops are open to students with all levels of experience.

Workshops that are currently scheduled are listed on my Events page: http://blueroofdesigns.com/upcoming/

I am available on both weekdays and weekends. Rates vary depending on preparation needs and project complexity. Materials fees are not included in rates.

Private Instruction: $35.00 per hour, per person
Workshops: $35.00 ā€“ $50.00 per hour, minimum 2 hours
School Programs: $250.00 ā€“ $400.00 per day, plus travel
