Learn the traditional basics of bookbinding in this one-day workshop. You will learn the terms used in bookbinding, familiarize yourself with all the tools, and create your own simple books including: stitched pamphlets, Japanese stab binding and a long stitch book. This workshop takes place in a bookbinding studio.

Materials, safety issues and different styles of bookbinding will be discussed. You will go home with at least four finished books. No previous experience necessary.

Take this knowledge forward to learn more about bookbinding in our other workshops.
