Stitching pages together has been a centuries-long tradition for binding books. This workshop will start attendees off by teaching and using two stitching approaches. But we won’t stop there. Why learn to bind books yourself, if not so you can shake things up in ways never found in commercial venues, right?
Techniques included:
Accordion folded pages
Making quick and very useful figure-8 stitched books
Binding a book using the classic stab-stitch.
Making our own paper bead book embellishments
