Atelier Bindery on 2013 Northwoods Art Tour

atelier5Atelier Bindery is proud to announce our participation in this year’s Northwoods Art Tour. In the spirit and tradition of the tour, we will open the bindery to the public for tours and unique demonstrations of ancient bookbinding techniques and equipment. From leather and cloth coverings to blind tooling and much more, we will have a full schedule of events for these two special weekends. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the art of bookbinding up close! We will also have custom cloth and leather journals and sketchbooks for sale, as well as samples of our restoration services. Updates will be forthcoming as the tour draws near.

The bindery is only one of many studios participating in the Art Tour. Check out the NWAT website for more details!

“More than 30 of Northern Wisconsin’s finest artists will open the doors of their studios and galleries from 10 AM to 5 PM on July 26th, 27th, 28th and October 11th, 12th and 13th, giving a unique behind the scenes opportunity to witness the creative process in the natural settings which provide their inspiration.

The self-guided tour winds through some of the prettiest back roads and byways in Vilas, Oneida, Iron, Langlade and Lincoln Counties. Art lovers will not only meet painters, potters, photographers, furniture makers, book binders, wood carvers, jewelers, glass and fiber artists face to face on their journey, but also enjoy the process of discovery and potential for unexpected delight.

Many of the galleries featured on the tour are open throughout the year. For the studio artists who often work alone, the tour is a wonderful way to interact with the community, answer questions and share lively discussions in addition to demonstrating and selling their work” (NWAT 2013)
