Virtual Maker Talk with Erin Fletcher BB '12
Binding by Erin Fletcher BB '12

Join us for an online conversation with bookbinder and NBSS alumna Erin Fletcher BB '12, discussing her process for creating a unique, embroidered design binding featured in the exhibition "Drop Dead Gorgeous: Fine Bindings of La Prose du Transsiberien."

Binding by Sue Doggett
For Erin, creating a design is the first hurdle. The design will determine how to proceed, what structure is appropriate and what materials are necessary. Inspiration can come fast and in great quantity, while other times there is no spark or connection. Using her binding of the unusual format of La Prose and other past work as a guide, Erin will discuss her process for design, exploration, and execution. There will be time for questions.

We'll also hear from fellow exhibitor Sue Doggett, about how she approaches the design and construction of a binding, and how La Prose presented a challenge both technically and creatively.

Open to the first 100 participants.
