Introduction to Bookbinding

By Burdock & Bramble (other events)

2 Dates Through Sep 22, 2018

In our intro bookbinding workshops, you will learn hands-on about bookbinding hand tools and materials and practice the basics of folding and stitching, covering boards with cloth, and preparing materials as you complete your own hardcover book. Each season we offer a workshop featuring a different binding project, so you can return for multiple classes and learn a new binding while sharpening your skills. In each workshop, we will work through a hardcover binding from start to finish, using your choice of plain or Burdock & Bramble printed bookcloth for the covers.
