Introduction to Bookbinding
Saturday, February 17th at 11:00 am

***Click HERE to Register***

Come join us in class or virtually, live, as we create a lovely faux leather notebook with decorative exposed saddle stitching on the spine.  You’ll learn the basics of bookbinding, as well as how to make cardstock look and feel like faux leather.  We’ll cover each signature with lovely 49 and Market papers and add lots of pockets and tuck spots.  Your book will be ideal for sketches or note taking.  When the book is bound, we’ll decorate the wrap cover with flowers and ribbon dyed to your choice of color.  Once you’ve learned the techniques, you’ll be able to make your own books, in different sizes and using different paper, such as watercolor or mixed media.  As a bonus, whether you attend in person at the store or online, or watch the class at your convenience, you’ll have access to the private class to view it again any time you want.  No bothersome note taking!  Please join me as we begin to explore this useful and lovely art form.
