Classes—Bookbinding & Journal Crafting

Learn how to sew and make a multipage, signature book with hard covers and rounded spine. The emphasis will be on understanding the engineering of a book.


Procedures learned can be used at home and applied to books of all sizes as well as to books purely as art.


There will be plenty of time to produce one volume in the Codex binding style of your own design. The class will continue with some alternate form of binding—Japanese stab, Coptic stitch, or repair—at your choice.
