Event description

Description

Please join us for a day of paper fun, learning how to create beautiful notebooks by hand!

In this sampler-style bookbinding workshop led by Carolyn Eady of Sprouts Press, students will learn the tools of the trade with easy, softcover bookbinding techniques to create unique, handmade books. Everyone will leave with three finished notebooks, made by (their own!) hand.

Carolyn will share several of the techniques she uses in a class suitable for beginners. Students will create three notebooks using different binding styles and paper selections. If you have taken Carolyn's Bookbinding Sampler Vol. I, in this workshop she will be teaching a set of completely new binding styles. These handcrafted notebooks can be used as sketchbooks, diaries, travel journals, or as a special place to gather your thoughts.

Please note that sharp tools are used in this class, making it unsuitable for children.

What to bring

All tools and materials will be provided (all fees included). Handmade books make beautiful gifts, and are sure to be treasured. If you fall in love with bookbinding at this workshop, you can apply your new skills at home by creating your own kit using the tool list that Carolyn provides.

If you require glasses to see small details, please be sure to bring them. As this workshop is four hours in length with a small break in between, please feel free to bring a lunch or snack.

Techniques covered

Students will learn three softcover binding variations, developed personally by Carolyn. Carolyn will go over the advantages of each of the bindings from a learning perspective, as well as offer tips on how to adapt these for your own work at home.

The bindings you will learn in this workshop are:

• Stab Binding (this is a different Stab Binding than was taught in Bookbinding Sampler Vol. 1)
• 2 Signature Binding
• Variation on the Pamphlet Binding

**In an effort to make the space comfortable for everyone, please avoid the use of perfumes and fragrances.

Note: This event is limited to 10 participants.


Bonus: on the day of the workshop, participants will get 10% off all regularly-priced merchandise in our studio-shop.
