In this exciting, hands-on workshop, you will learn how to make two beautiful non-adhesive books structures: the Long Stitch and the Buttonhole Stitch bindings. Both bindings have exposed decorative sewing on the spine and lots of potential in terms of materials selection, colour combinations, stitching and decorating techniques. They open completely flat which makes them ideal to use as sketchbooks, notebooks, photo albums or to incorporate your own artwork or writing.
You will learn about different bookbinding tools, materials and techniques, including identifying the grain-direction in paper and card, folding signatures, making covers, creating spine cutouts, experiment with different sewing methods. The workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience in bookbinding.
