To every thing there is a season, and right now is not a season of teaching for me, but instead a season of learning and making!  If you’d like to add a book arts class to the list below, simply leave a comment! I’d love this page to be a community resource. (I have no affiliation with any of these classes, please contact the venue or instructor directly if you have questions)

Hi Ruth. Your work is absolutely stunning and intriguing. I see you have occasional courses; do you ever have online classes? I live in Canada and do not have access to quality bookbinding classes.
