Bookbinding is an exciting and ancient craft! Our long-stitch bookbinding workshops give you 2 hours of studio time and instruction by our knowledgable staff. They run most days at 11:00am.
Our leather is always changing based on availability. We sometimes have etching leather, and other times have leather with a finish which takes paint well.
We offer extra heavy white art paper, as well as "curious grey" smooth text paper. We have tea-stained pages upon request to cover your sections as well.
Our medium journals are about 5.5" x 8.5"- great for journaling on-the-go! They have 5 sections (or signatures) with white, heavy weight art paper for text, drawing, sketching, collaging and more. You may request tea-stained pages to cover your sections. Cost is $79 (includes materials, instruction and studio time).
Large journals are about 9" x 12" and deliciously thick! People have used them for grimoires, spell books, book of shadows, plant studies (pressing, drawing and documenting medicinal herbs) and more. They have 6 sections of white, heavy weight art paper. Cost is $159 (includes materials, instruction and studio time).
Price includes instruction/studio time & all materials
Yes! $50 is your deposit and is needed to secure a spot at our workshop. We will deduct this from your journal when finished.
Workshops run most days at 11:00am, We try to keep our workshops small (about 2-8 people).
Bookbinding is geared towards 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 that should work out fine! Please note: you must be ready to help your child. Our instructor will be busy helping everyone, and cannot focus specifically on your child. Thank you for understanding.
Long stitch bookbinding has a soft leather cover, usually about 1.5-2mm's thick. 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!
We created holes in your leather for you, as this involves a lot of hammering and we have neighbors above us. You'll do all of the bookbinding and embellishing!
We use white, heavy weight art/text paper, and medium journals may have the option of "curious grey" text paper when available. Your pages are empty so you can use your journal however you wish.
You must cancel within 24 hours to get a refund. There are no refunds for late cancellations and "no-shows". Thank you for understanding.
