Workshop // Introduction to BookBinding

October 27, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join our resident bookbinder and conservator, James Davis, to learn the art of hand bookbinding and walk away with your very own journal. Starting with paper, board, and thread, students will be instructed on the techniques and practices of constructing a well made blank book from scratch. Each journal will feature hand stitching and decorative marbled paper covers. Discussions will focus on the history of bookbinding and conservation techniques for preserving books within our libraries and museums.

All materials will be provided and no prior bookbinding experience is necessary. Please wear closed toed shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting a little messy or bring an apron if you have one.

Tickets are $275 for CLS members and $325 for the Public
