Spice up your Saturday!
I'm so excited to announce that I will be teaching a bookbinding workshop at the Porter Mills Studios in Beverly, MA. This class will be a one-day workshop on Saturday April 14th.
Are you looking for a new way to spend your Saturday? Come join me for a fabulous combo letterpress & bookbinding workshop! Calling all DIY-er's, scrapbookers, artists, crafters, creatives, and anyone and EVERYONE in between. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
Bookbinding is a very approachable hands-on traditional craft where you can check your fear at the door. I will teach you step by step how to go from flat pages, thread, and flat board to a finished blank journal.
Shown below are some of B.IMPRESSED's chipboard blank books with letterpress printed covers. The looped pamphlet stitch is what I have adopted as my signature stitch and I can't wait to share it with you!
Now is the time to take your note-taking, scrapbooking and memento recording to the next level by making your own customized blank books.
Your handmade book will surely impress everyone who sees it. Why carry a store-bought journal when you can make your own?
In the workshop, students will learn the looped-pamphlet stitch and make their own blank journal or sketchbook with a letterpress printed cover!
You'll learn how to make a book from start to finish and you'll also get an introduction to letterpress printing. Students will be able to personalize their hand-made books with hand-set metal type that will be letterpress printed on a Kelsey 3x5 table-top press. Black ink will be provided for printing.
Each student will also receive their own bookbinding kit consisting of a: bonefolder, awl (for punching holes), and book-binding needle. *Students will be able to take this kit with them to continue binding after the workshop.
*********Open to Teens & Adults. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED*********
