Come make a beautiful, rustic, leather covered sketchbook! We’ll be working with reclaimed leather and some creative, heavy-weight page paper to bind your very own blank book, perfect for a travel journal, sketchbook, or just to doodle in. We’ll cover some basic bookbinding techniques (no previous experience necessary!) and you’ll design your own book. We’ll bind it all together with the decorative and functional long stitch. You’ll leave class with instructions and a few tools to continue making books at home. Students required to bring xacto knife, ruler and cutting mat.
