About this Workshop:

This non-adhesive binding style is very popular with artists and writers because it opens flat, making it a great book for writing and sketching. The cover boards and the spine are covered as three separate pieces, and then a single thread is used to weave them into a single cover.

Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Bookmaking or similar bookmaking experience (6 hours) is  recommended.

Registration closes May 17, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class. A list of additional items students will need to gather/purchase for class will be sent with the registration confirmation email.
