In this class you will gain an introduction to the basics of book binding, and the tools, skills and materials required to make your own journals and notebooks.
Workshop teacher, Joanna Kambourian, will take you through the process of binding your a notebook or journal using an exposed, decorative stitch (Coptic Stitch) to secure the pages and covers. You will leave the class with your own handmade book to keep. The class is aimed at all levels, however all kinds of artists and creatives can benefit from the technique and apply this in their practice. Or just come and make a gorgeous notebook to use yourself or give to someone for a unique gift.
