Join us for a day of creative bookbinding! First, students will learn some basic paper decorating techniques, the tools of the trade and an introduction to bookbinding. Then, we’ll transform these papers into covers and craft journals using the Buttonhole stitch. This is a hands-on class, and everyone leaves with a finished project, beginners are welcome.
If you require glasses to see fine details, be sure to bring them.
