Does the thought of live teaching online spook you?

But you are keen to share your genius ideas and made skills with the world (and maybe even CBBAG)!

Here’s your chance to ask our experts!

CBBAG's own online instructors:

Marilyn Book, Karen Hanmer, Barb Helander, and Stuart Hill

Join us for a book talk about Online Teaching – an “ask them (almost) anything” question and answer session!

It would be appreciated if questions could be submitted in advance to education@cbbag.ca to give our panelists time to consider their answers!


Marilyn Book has an LIT and a BA in Communications. She has retired after spending 30 years working in the public education libraries from elementary to college levels where she has led several extra-curricular classes on bookbinding with students.  She has been a member of CBBAG since 2013 and is pleased to have earned her Certificate of Completion in 2019.

Karen Hanmer’s artist-made books are physical manifestations of personal essays intertwining history, culture, politics, science, and technology. She utilizes both traditional and contemporary book structures, and the work is often playful in content or format. Hanmer’s work is included in collections ranging from The British Library and the Library of Congress to Stanford University and Graceland. She has served on the editorial board of The Bonefolder, as Exhibitions Chair for the Guild of Book Workers, twice as a presenter at the Guild’s annual Standards of Excellence conference, and as juror for CBBAG’s 2013 The Art of the Book travelling exhibit. She offers workshops and private instruction focusing on a solid foundation in traditional binding skills. www.karenhanmer.com

Barbara Helander holds two degrees (B.Ed., M.Sc.) and her major in both was Clothing & Textiles. Her professional career spanned over 35 years where she worked not only in apparel manufacturing but also as a professor of textiles at Seneca College.  Over the years, Barbara has been nurturing a small keepsake business that involved the creation of one-of-a-kind books; but now that she has formally retired, she can finally take bookbinding and the book arts off the back burner!  Barb has worked her way through the core CBBAG courses and was pleased to earn her certificate in the spring of 2010.  Barbara is one of the core curriculum instructors for CBBAG - she teaches BB1 which is the introduction to the fundamentals of the craft.  She is also a mentor for CBBAG Home Study.

Stuart Hill has studied bookbinding under the guidance of Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Don Taylor, Dan Mezza, Karin Scheper, and Rose Newlove. With a background in engineering and architecture, his keen interest is in the discovery of book structures. Please visit Stuart’s website: www.georgehillco.com.
