Simple Signature Stitches with Shannon Kerner
Wednesday 6/12, 7-10pm
$65; $35 for members
This class will give you a basic understanding of how to bind books. We will begin by making a simple single signature book, with a few options for how to stitch it up, and then we will move on to make our books bigger. We will then learn to make multiple signature books using a variety of materials for covers. Bring any materials you may want to learn how to use (a leather scrap you've been saving for years, or a cracker box) to practice on.
