Handstitched Artist’s Journal – One Day Workshop

criss cross coptic
In this beginning bookbinding class you will make a beautiful hardcover journal, not too big and not too small! We will use decorative paper and cut a recessed window in the front cover which can hold a charm, button, photograph or ornament of your choice (please bring a few items with you and we will decide in class which is best). Each text page will have a lovely faux decal edge. This journal lies flat when open and has an exposed spine so you can see the colour-coordinated stitching which adds a wonderful decorative element to an already special book. This class is now WAIT LIST ONLY
