Obviously, I have been absent for some time. Family health issues have required that I focus my attention elsewhere. I have had little time to pursue the book binding and clasp making as I have in the past and it is unlikely that I will be doing any new workshops in the near future. I apologize for not responding to comments and inquiries.
I will be leaving this site up in the hope that others may still benefit. If I ever have time, I hope to update again. Depending on the job, it is possible that I may take some commissions for clasp restoration, repair or replication. And I have some thoughts for some other clasp related projects and/or ventures.
Thanks to the bookbinding community and to the internet community for all your encouragement and support over the years.
