This class is in person and outdoors. This class meets at the location. More info will be sent upon registration.
Booking Binding at 577 Thursday 10am - 12pm Book Binding (In Person at 577) - Learn to make your own journal or sketch book! We will learn at least 2 techniques for making high-quality actually-usable books. The first is an 8.5 x 5.5" sewn-and-glued fairly standard bound book, much like a hardcover you would get at the store. The second is a more advanced style, often called a "coptic" stitch binding, that requires a bit more dexterity and uses a curved needle rather than a straight needle. All materials provided, but if kids have pictures from magazines or stickers, or cool paper, or anything else they might want to add, they can certainly bring them in! Masks & social distancing required. We'll provide hand sanitizer.
