Susan Bonthron offers classes in the book arts at Otter Pond Bindery in rural Guilford, Vermont. The bindery is located on a pond and surrounded by decks, gardens, stone walls and woodland. Studio classes at the bindery provide such a special day-long extravaganza for the senses that students nicknamed it the "Art Spa."

Susan has studied book arts with teachers Paulus Berensohn, Linda Lembke, Julie Chen, Hedi Kyle, Claire Van Vliet, Daniel Kelm, and at the Center for Book Arts in New York City. She offers residencies in schools, nature centers, and libraries. Susan enjoys working with teachers to integrate book arts into curriculum. Visit her gallery to see some of her own designs, commissions, and collaborations with others to produce limited editions.

Susan updates her studio class schedule several times a year. Email her at to be included on her notification list.
