My name is Monica Holtsclaw and I am a book artist and sewer of many things. On most days I'll be found working in my studio in San Rafael, CA. I also enjoy teaching bookbinding and box making workshops. In 2016, I joined the fine folks at the San Francisco Center for the Book where you can find me teaching some of their core curriculum bookbinding classes.

My studies have included degrees in bookbinding from North Bennet Street School in Boston and graphic design from the Savannah College of Art & Design.

For more information about workshops that I am teaching as well as dates when my studio is open to the public, please visit my calendar page.
