This beginner's bookbinding workshop will introduce you to the basics of book construction, terminology and the fundamental hand skills needed to begin your journey down the rabbit hole of making books.
In this one-day workshop you will make two notebooks (a single and double signature, with cover) and an accordion-fold pocket booklet. But, there's more! You'll also take home a basic toolkit so that you can continue your book-binding journey. We also have a few other surprises planned.
Leslie Drisdale began bookbinding in 1992, a natural offshoot from her interest in paper and her experience as a conservation focused fine art framer. As a materials engaged kind of maker, she is continually inspired by the countless innovative possibilities made available through exploring book structures.
