Private, duet, quartet (maximum 4 students) instruction is offered semesterly in a quiet setting with a Japanese aesthetic. Lindsay instructs courses additionally at the Austin Center for Books Arts, please see their website for a class listing.
I have been greatly influenced by my Japanese heritage in the “minguren” hand craft movement and received a bookbinding certificate from the North Bennet Street School in Boston, Massachusetts.
I produce quality work from fine materials in a aesthetic that lends beauty, function and joy to our daily lives.
