PSBA member Elizabeth Walsh

Elizabeth Walsh is a graphic designer for the Washington State Senate.  She has been a
calligrapher/paper & book artist since 1978, attending many international calligraphy conferences.  Elizabeth is also the founder of the Olympia Calligraphy Guild, Nib ‘n’ Inks, in 1980 and has taken bookbinding master classes with Shereen LaPlantz, Bonnie Stahlecker, Elsi Vasdall-Ellis, Don Guyot, Suzanne Moore, Kevin Steele, Laurie Doctor, and other calligraphers.


In this binding, we will create five 3-panel star tunnel signatures using Canson Mi-Tientes,
will sew each signature to a narrow concertina, using a 3 or 5-hole pamphlet stitch,
will bind the fore edges with skewers and rubber bands, and
complete the structure with piano-hinged covers.
