Bookbarnkat Studios (BBKSTU) is relocating to North Bay, CA after five years in Florence Italy.
190 Oak Island Drive (Oakmont area)
Santa Rosa, CA 95409
The area is mecca for artists in all media, home to some of the longest running open studio festivals in the USA. Not to mention the incredibly scenic Sonoma and Napa Valley wineries, hostelries and world rated restaurants.
In the near future, we will begin offering week and weekend long classes designed to develop your bookbinding skills on a progression from basic journals, books, albums, portfolios and box making to fine binding in decorated full leather.
We will also be offering paper arts, calligraphy, paper decoration including marbling, and other book arts classes over time. We specialize in inviting world master artists to teach in our studio in addition to our own classes.
We encourage you to contact us with your interests so we can generate and host classes of interest to you and friends.
We invite instructors to contact us to invent new and exciting classes to be hosted by BBKSTU in the beautiful surroundings of Sonoma Valley.
We have a very extensive supply of European and Japanese papers for binding, boxmaking and restoration, and bookbinding tools, contact us with your needs.by
