Presented by Burgess Voshell

Explore bookbinding through making. We’ll make two sketchbooks, each using a different technique. Our practice begins with stab binding: a very simple yet elegant traditional Japanese process. Building on that experience, we’ll learn Coptic binding: a beautifully distinct style that allows our book to lay completely flat. By the end of this 3 hour workshop, you’ll have the experience to start making your own custom books and to start tackling new bookbinding techniques.

Materials and tools included in fee:

We'll provide additional needed tools for classroom use. Be aware that this class uses sharp tools and may not be appropriate for all ages.

$120, materials included.
