Beginning Bookbinding

  • Dates: Wednesday, 7:15-9:15pm, 10 Weeks
  • Tuition: $80
  • Instructor: Sandra Haynes
    This class will cover the basic bookbinding techniques of:
    – Folded book structures
    – 3 and 5 hole pamphlet sewing
    – Single and double chain stitch sewing
    – Long Stitch and other sewings for use with paperback books
    – Exposed spine coptic stitch sewing

    Students will make at least one book using each of the techniques listed above.
