What's up!

Sorry about the formatting. I'm still trying to figure this out. I don't even know if it's possible to make the photos go beside each other! Please be patient with me. If this were a relief press I would just use my hands to literally move the pictures. Sigh.

So I've been hosting the Bind and Blab at my studio for almost a year now. It's quite fun. I get to meet interesting, creative people, chat, sometimes work, and share my love of the book arts. A small article written about the Bind and Blab. Come on out if you can!

I've also added some information on a workshop that I am holding. There are still a few spaces left. It's quite a fun workshop and great for creative people who like to experiment.

Thurs. Oct. 25, 5:30 - 8:30 pm.
Bring your book projects to work on, supplies, knowledge, wit and enthusiasm.
There will be communal pot of PVA and tea on the go for everyone! Please bring a cup with you for tea!
We host this free event on the last Thursday of each month.
Call Akemi at 416-214-1882 to reserve a spot around the tables!
FREE! This is not a workshop.

Letterpress workshop

Yay! My Intro to Letterpress workshop is full!
Now, I just have to figure out when I can start opening the studio to the public at regular hours. I've got a list of artists whose work I would like to sell for the holidays. I'm hoping to focus the retail aspect of KOZO to all things letterpress, hand bound books, printmaklers prints and hand made paper and art. I have a list of makers and artists I'd like to carry. Is it too ambitious? I don't know. Time and my exploding brain will tell.

Hello! Let's try this out!

Okay. Let's try this out. I'm a bit of a luddite so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Let's see if I can post some photos of my work space.
