Event Details

Ever heard the saying, "measure twice, cut once"? Well it's a good rule of thumb for craft projects, but there are many more helpful tips and tricks for mastering accurate measuring and cutting in the book arts. In this core class we'll go over techniques and tools bookbinders use to insure their finished products are square and precise. We will create a simple four-flap wrapper to hold a book, measured and cut to perfectly fit its size. Please bring a book of your own to put in the wrapper.

Instructor: Deborah Howe
