Arts & Entertainment Sylva library hosts Bookmaking II

Gayle WoodyLocal artist Gayle Woody will present a Bookmaking II workshop on Tuesday, June 18, at 7 p.m. in the Atrium of the Jackson County Public Library Complex. This program is free of charge. Space is limited to the first ten people who register. Call the library to sign up.

The workshop will allow participants to learn how to hand bind a book with the Coptic stitch. These handmade books are excellent for use particularly as journals and sketchbooks because pages will lay flat when opened. Recycled books will be used for the covers. Participants may bring their own hardback book to reconfigure, or choose from covers that will be provided.

Woody has lived in Sylva and Cullowhee for more than 50 years. She is currently the art teacher at Smoky Mountain High School. She is a member of the Jackson County Arts Council and has won numerous awards for her art. She is married to Phil Woody, who recently retired from teaching at Scotts Creek Elementary School, and has four children and 11 grandchildren.

This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library. For more information, call the JCPL at (828)586-2016.
