Given that our fall classes are ones that cannot be taught effectively with the required distancing, the classes listed from mid-September onward will be postponed and be placed on our schedule in the futureFor 2021, we are optimistic that we can hold our planned Fabric Marbling courses on April 22-23 and April 26-27 with Regina and Dan St. John. We will be posting more information about that on this website and please follow us on Instagram at ctrbookarts.

Also in 2021, we are planning a Silk Road Series for later in the year that will encompass a wide range of arts including Japanese papermaking, Suminagashi, Japanese bookbinding, Calligraphy, Coptic binding, Turkish Ebru marbling, and ending with an intensive on Italian marbled patterns and a wine tasting!  The Silk Road Series will be our multi-day extravaganza intended to banish Covid19 and turn our eyes toward a bright and exciting future at Cat Tail Run and the School for Bookbinding Arts.

The School for Bookbinding Arts is dedicated to teaching the craft of bookbinding in conjunction with its allied arts such as papermaking, paper marbling, letterpress printing, and calligraphy. We believe that nothing sharpens the eye of a bookbinder more than gaining hands-on knowledge of all the processes that go into the making of a traditional book.
Please see all that we have to offer and join us on the journey to Live a Bookful Life.™
