upcoming class in bookbinding

I've finally been able to organise a class and within a week, there's only one place left!  Wow :)
If you're interested, it's on Saturday 24th March, to be held in the little bookshop in Portland (that's Victoria, Australia in case you were wondering).

I've decided to run a workshop that showcases two of the 'easier' projects: a concertina book like this one, and a simple sewn journal like this one.

Since the places have (nearly) filled so fast, I'll be looking to repeat the workshop so if you are interested, please let me know or make contact with Megan at the little bookshop to register your details.

new market for us - The Design Exchange, Ballarat

I was so very excited to learn last week that luciandjoe bookbinding will be appearing at The Design Exchange market in Ballarat.
This amazing market is held in the equally amazing Mining Exchange building in the centre of the city.

The local newspaper, the Ballarat Courier did a story on their first market which you can read here.

The Design Exchange Market
Sunday 4th March, 10am to 4pm

Perhaps I'll see you there?

blog post about luciandjoe

I was approached recently by Samara, author of the Maddabling blog, who likes to promote Australian sellers on Etsy.  I was surprised to be featured as I am such a new seller on the site and an even newer member of the Dust team, but I'm very grateful for the opportunity!
You can see the blog entry here, as well as gaining access to her previous feature posts about some of our very talented Aussie artisans.

This is another sneak peek photo: this book has some pretty cool features (no bashfulness from me!).
I'll be listing some new books on etsy over the next few weeks.
