Long-stitch Bookbinding: the Medieval Paperback (with Anneka Baird)

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$35 – $65

The Long-stitch has been used as far back as the 14th century as a stationary binding and as a temporary binding for books with more elaborate (and expensive) futures.

This simple multi-section structure allows for a virtually unlimited number of pages and is well-suited for sketchbooks, notebooks and journals. It is also a popular structure for artists’ books as the spine lends itself readily to decoration.

In addition to binding a book (or two, if time permits) you will learn some basic bookbinding terms, understand quality and anatomy of paper and how to use it to best effect, and techniques for folding and cutting paper. This class is an excellent option for first-time book-binders.

Instructions: You may wish to bring a water bottle, snacks, or something to take notes with. This class will take place indoors.
