The Guild of Book Workers hosted a workshop with Shanna Leino this weekend at Pyramid Atlantic in Silver Spring, Maryland. Shanna is a well known book artist and tool maker. She came with all the tools and materials we needed to make our own bone folders: moose bone (already boiled and cut down into smaller pieces), hewing hatchets, chisels, files, jeweler's saws, a dremmel tool, and many, many Band-Aids!. The process is low tech but requires a good bit of effort and time. Patience is definitely required!
