The first class will begin with a simple accordion binding. Learn the basics of paper folding and gluing, skills that will help participants move to the more difficult binding, the case bound book, a multiple page sewn book with hardcovers. This elegant and sturdy hardcover binding is perfect for blank journals.

Students will leave with 2 beautiful books, an accordion and a case bound journal, as well as the knowledge to make these books at home. Paper and board are included but students are welcome to bring their favorite decorative paper for their book covers. This class is perfect for students that are binding their own thesis book.
