Three Books, One Night, NO Glue!  Bookbinding Workshop

Tell your friends! Tell your family!  Tell strangers! Pygmalion's will hold our next bookbinding workshop on Thursday, April 17th: Three Books, One Night, No Glue. Becky Wood, a Pygmalion's favorite, will teach this very popular workshop.

In this one evening workshop, you will make three simple books, about 4 x 6 in size. Did we mention No Glue? We will make the exceptionally easy Stick and Band book (using recycled bike parts), the classic Stab Bound book, and a new book fondly known as the knotty book that will be equally fun, moderately challenging, and comes straight from the mind of Becky Wood.

The cost of the workshop is $45.00 and all materials are included. The workshop will begin at 6:30 p.m.and end around 9:00 p.m.

To register stop by the store or call us (812-332-0025).  You will need to pay a deposit of $22.50 (half the cost of the workshop). We are happy to take your deposit with a credit card over the phone.   Space is limited to 8 students.  If we do not have an enrollment of at least 5 people, we will not be able to hold the workshop.

Our new custom color for the year is here! Only $8.95 per tube!

All proceeds from sales of Eggplant benefit the Ivy Tech Art For Kids Youth Scholarship Fund.

Manufactured for us by Gamblin Artist Oil Colors, Eggplant is a unique warm violet artist grade oil color. Eggplant mixes well with other oil colors, as well as oil-based printmaking inks, to create a wide range of beautiful, subtle colors.

Use Eggpant in a work of art and you can win a prize! To celebrate our custom color, and to express our appreciation for our customers, we will have our one-night Eggplant art show and party this year on Friday, April 11.  We encourage artists of all ages and levels of experience to buy a tube of Eggplant, use it in a work of art, and enter their work in our show. Entries received on or by Wednesday, April 9 will be eligible for an exciting array of cash and merchandise prizes.  Judging will take place Thursday the 10th, then Friday morning and afternoon the artwork will be hung all around the store, on the walls, on top of merchandise racks, wherever it will fit!  Then Friday night we have our party! You won't want to miss the gourmet food prepared by Pygmalion's owner John Wilson, and all the wonderful works of art.
