Program Description

Event Details

Come learn to bind a book using long stitch binding with a heavy paper cover. This binding technique is simple but allows for plenty of variation in style and can be adapted to other materials you might like to use at home. Plus we'll experiment with a few different kinds of paper and talk about how to get the best results even from paper you haven't used before.

Then, join us in May for coptic binding (we'll talk about covers) and in June for a binding with a few more parts.

This program involves awls, needles, and craft knives. Teens and adults only, please! Space is limited by supplies.
