Make & Take: Leather Bound Hand-Sewn Book Workshop

I love making books of all kinds! In this 2 part one-day workshop you will create your own leather bound sketchbook or journal using up-cycled leather and artist quality paper. No sewing experience required! Not only will you leave with your own beautiful handmade book, but you will have skills to make more for sharing and giving. I will supply everything you need. If you do have a cork-backed metal ruler (at least 12” long) and/or an exacto knife with extra blades, please bring them with you. If you took my paste paper class, feel free to bring some of your own along - otherwise you’ll have plenty of mine to choose from. I love sharing, and look forward to sharing this process with you! (We will take the hour in-between to eat some lunch while the glue dries on our covers.)

Actively working as a lettering artist since 1982, Patti practices calligraphy as an art-form and uses hand-rendered letterforms in her graphic design work.She also paints, draws, is a bookmaker, and her new found love of charcoal is opening up fresh avenues of expression for her.

Level: Any, sign up today!
