Long-Stitch Bookbinding Workshop

March 17, 2019; 3 – 6pm

$25 Workshop fee, Register here.

Learn to make your own sketchbook or notebook with the long stitch binding method. This type of exposed-stitch binding dates back to medieval Europe, typically created as a blank book used for record-keeping. The binding design is easily altered and participants will be able to make their own personal variations. All materials and tools will be provided. Learning the technique will be paralleled with instruction for developing a daily writing or drawing practice. Once you get it down, this is a quick technique requiring relatively few tools that you can use for all your future notebooks! 

No previous bookbinding experience is necessary.
