Ornament Book Making

Saturday, Nov 3, 2018 1:00pm - 4:00pm  Construct a small book with an elegant slipcase, which is also the perfect size to hold a gift card.  In the process, you’ll learn the core skills for creating larger handmade books.  We have all the beautiful, decorative papers, tools and supplies you’ll need. 

Instructor’s name:

Barbara Mintmire began making handmade books in 2011, and she’s a member of the Stillwater Book Arts Group.  She loves experimenting with eco printing and natural dyes on paper, using them to create 3D collage and paper sculpture. 

Barbara’s been a miniaturist her entire life, creating assemblage and miniature landscapes that play tricks with perspective and the viewer’s expectations.  She has done restoration work on dozens of models, including the Stillwater Grand Opera House model located at the Stillwater History Museum at the Sheerar Center. 

In a larger format, she led the creation of two community art installations involving huge, fiber woven panels.  And as an avid stencil maker and painter, she once covered the four walls of a large classroom with a detailed trompe l’oeil mural of a Mediterranean courtyard. 

Finding solace in chocolate, Barbara helps others do the same by leading chocolate tastings as the need arises.  For a change of pace, she writes and edits material for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Oklahoma State University.
