Handmade Book Workshop with Michelle Schaffer: One Day Workshop Saturday, March 23rd, 2-5pm

Michelle Schaffer Archive: Workshops

Have you ever wanted to make your own bound book? This class is for anyone who is interested in being introduced to the basics of making books by hand. No prior bookmaking experience is required. 

 

In this workshop we will cover copic binding. This binding is an open stitched spine that allows the book to lay flat when open. Great for painting and sketching.

 

So if you would like to be able to make a sketchbook with your favorite drawing paper, make a watercolor book for taking on site for your plein air painting or maybe make a book to take on vacation for you to journal in, then this is the class for you! The beauty of learning how to bind your own book is you can make it custom to your needs and preferences.

 

The price of the workshop includes materials for making one book in class and bookbinding tools for you to take home for your next project. Hope you can join us!

 

Michelle has a background in book publishing and has been making travel sketchbooks for her family for almost 20 years.
