For Current Members Only!
Join us for Bookmaking “Happy Hour,” an open studio session where book makers receive guidance from one of Pyramid’s Book Arts Associates on their personal bookbinding projects and have full access to the bindery equipment: paper guillotine, board shear, book presses (standing and backing), and the Kensol gold foil stamper.* Each session starts with a brief demo on a specific technique, fold, or stitch. Recent bookmaking experience (e.g. workshop participation) required with your RSVP. *Note: Reservation of the foil stamper is on a first come, first served basis and requires certification.
Happy Hour registrations close at 12pm noon the day of the session. To check about last minute openings/accommodations, call: 301-608-9101. No walk-ins will be accepted. Pyramid will have some tools and general paper available for use, but remember to bring all the supplies you’ll need to work on your project with you.
Please note: Happy Hours are open studio sessions intended for practicing your skills and working independently among other members. Happy Hours are not suitable for one-to-one instruction. For one-to-one lessons, please visit the section on Individual Instruction.
