Zoom-Based BOOKBINDING FOR EVERYONE
with Roberta Lavadour

There are few things more empowering than making your own book – even if it’s yet to be written. In this class students will create a hard-bound binding that can be used as a guest book, sketchbook, or journal. You’ll be introduced to new tools and learn skills that can be transferred to future book arts projects. Beginners are welcome and experienced book-makers will pick up some new tips. We’ll have a short lunch break and students are encouraged to bring a lunch to eat while we have additional Q&A.

$50 MEMBERS/$55 NON-MEMBERS + $10 MATERIALS FEE

Look for dates soon!
