Nyla Raney and Jenn Hamm showing one of the little handmade books they brought with them to the Museum of Ephemera in Nakusp.

Book ‘em, ladies!

Salmo-based artists Jenn Hamm and Nyla Raney made a stop in Nakusp on May 26 to teach a book-making workshop at the Museum of Ephemera.

Salmo-based artists Jenn Hamm and Nyla Raney made a stop in Nakusp on May 26 to teach a book-making workshop at the Museum of Ephemera, studio and home to artists Chuck Stake and Wendy Toogood.

The Museum, whose walls are papered with postcards, painting and pictures, was full of keen book-minded folks learning how to bind their own art books on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Hamm and Raney have been touring for months already, and Nakusp is their last stop before they head over to the East Kootenay to instruct the good people there in the fine art of book making. To give participants an idea of what can be done, the pair brings a small, very portable library of handmade books they have collected over the years, some with illustrations and text, others still waiting to be filled.

The duo’s visit in Nakusp was a bit more special than most because it was a combination workshop-camping-birthday stay in the Municipal campground with their families.

The pair are back on the road taking their little library and skills to Cranbrook soon.
