Can’t Get Engough of Shanna Leino

 North Bennet Street School invites GBW:

Artist Talk With Shanna Leino

Thursday, April 9, 2009. 6-8 PM
North Bennet Street School

“I love the structural challenge of building a book to fit the content. The words and stories can come from a country song scrap heap, but they primarily come from experiences roving around the South with my friend Lindsay, to Kentucky, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Mississippi, and over to Texas. Heat and sparks and thunder, finding another good night’s sleep in the car, it all gives you a rash, but you can’t get enough.” — Artist Statement

FREE but RSVP.  To register, please call (617) 227-0155 or email workshop @

And if it gives you a rash but you can’t get enough:

Bone Toolmaking Workshop with Shanna Leino
Fri & Sat, Apr 10-11, 2009, 10:00am-4:00pm
North Bennet Street School

Smooth, polished to a shine, and fitting perfectly in your hand – there is nothing like the feel of a bone folder you’ve made with your own hands. During this two-day workshop you will be introduced to the tools and techniques needed to form and finish bone folders of your own design. Simple methods of adding adornment to your tools will also be demonstrated. No previous experience is necessary. Bring some elbow grease and expect to leave with two to three bone folders that will be beautiful to look at and wonderful to use! Please bring a notebook, pencil, and ruler to class. If you have the following items, please bring them as well: needle files and jeweler’s saw frame.

$375.  You can register online or email workshop @
