About The Event
Learn to make a book! This elegant hardcover binding uses a visible link stitch along an exposed spine. The book will lay completely flat when open, making it ideal for journals, photo albums, sketchbooks and art projects. Because of the non-adhesive nature of this binding method, it is a popular structure among contemporary bookbinders. To allow you to focus on the sewing, which is time consuming, a pair of covers will be provided for you. Students will learn the parts of a book and how to prepare materials for future projects. The class is open to beginners as well as more experienced bookbinders who enjoy the coptic structure! By the end of the workshop, you will have completed your book, and have the skill to make more on your own.
Ami Beaver is a talented artist and beloved teacher of papermaking, bookbinding, paper crafts, painting, printing and more! Join her for a fun and lively Friday night of making books.
