You’ll never throw away a soap box again! In this introductory bookbinding class by Bel Mills, students will learn how to turn that ordinary little box into an extraordinary little blank book with a hand stitched spine. Patterned paper, book cloth, and waxed linen thread are among the few supplies required to produce this pocket-sized, personalized journal. Ideal for taking on the road or giving as a gift. The inside pages are blank and ready to fill with tiny goodness. Students can use the finished journal as a mini art-journal, habit-tracker, dream journal, or line-a-day diary. Also a great place for artists to test pens and paints, or demo rubber stamps. A variety of basic bookbinding techniques will be covered, including proper folding, gluing and stitching.
Level: All levels, both novice and intermediate bookmakers, welcome.
Registration closes February 2, 2022 to allow time for students to gather/purchase any needed supplies for class. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including cardstock, papers, templates, thread, PVA glue, and more.
