Bookbinding is an exciting craft! Our workshops use the long stitch method of bookbinding, and currently run Thursdays through Sundays with extra dates in October. Call us to book a private workshop (for 2 or more people) at no extra cost.
We have two sizes to choose from. Medium journals are more compact with soft, smooth pages- perfect for writing and journaling on-the-go. Size is about 5.5" x 8.5". Cost is $75.
Large journals are deliciously thick with extra heavy-weight pages- perfect for writing, drawing, illustrating, collaging, scrap booking. Size is about 9" x 12" and 2-3 inches thick! Cost is $125.
The first half of your workshop is spent binding your journal. When finished, you can personalize your journal with symbols and images and other mixed-media items that have meaning for you. See what we have in store...!
Tea stained pages add a unique look to your journal. We provide you with a tea-stained cover page for each section of your journal. Ask us about tea-staining your journal pages at home!
Workshops are about an hour and a half long (but we give you 2 hours just in case!). They currently run Thursdays at 4pm, and Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 11:00am with extra dates in October. We try to keep our workshops small, however two or more people are still needed to run the class. If you don’t see a day/time that works for you, please text or call us at 339-203-1307. We will do our best to accommodate!
* * * $75 is required to secure your spot, but you can upgrade to a large journal at anytime!
Bookbinding is geared towards older teens and adults. It involves sharp tools and a lot of focus. Everyone sitting at the table must bind their own book. If you want to help your younger child bind a book and can still bind your own book, then great! (Please note: our instructor will be busy helping everyone, and will not be able to focus specifically on your child. Please be ready to help your child). Thank you for understanding.
We've cut and burned holes in your leather- this involves hot tools and we don't want you to burn your fingers. You'll do all of the book binding and embellishing!
Materials include leather (leather styles vary according to availability), refillable blank pages, stitching, metal pendant/charm, in-store use of celtic and other stencils, in-store us of leather paint pens, tracing film to create templates to go. Other supplies such as bones and other mixed media available for purchase.
Your pages are empty so you can use your journal however you wish.
Long stitch bookbinding has a thick, soft leather cover. We prefer the long stitch method because it does not involve glue or other adhesives. Your book will have refillable blank pages which are great for writing, drawing, you name it!
In October, there are no refunds, but you can get store credit. Thank you for understanding.
