Bari Zaki in Boston | Buttonhole Stitch

175.00

Date: Saturday, April 6 — 11am–3pm - three seats open 

What you will make: This binding style makes for a wonderful sketchbook, photo album, or journal. A little window on the spine provides great visual delight, especially if you alternate or gradate the colors of the signatures within.

We begin by getting acquainted with paper grain and its importance for the finished book. After a “tour” of the bookbinding tools you will use, you’ll be ready to fold ten full size sheets of drawing papers (with deckled edges) into signatures to create a nice size book. Next you will select your cover, prepared for you in advance. Once your book is stitched, you will attach your ribbon closure and make a pocket/envelope for the interiors of your front and back covers. A blush of accomplishment ensues!

Class Size: 6 students. No previous bookbinding experience necessary.

By the end of this class you will have one completed book, plus the tools (bone folder, shipping clerk’s knife, lightweight awl) and confidence to make more at home, thanks to our charming illustrated handout with step-by-step instructions. We look forward to sharing our love of papers & bookbinding with you in this four-ish hour workshop!

Class fee includes all materials we use to make a book: European mouldmade paper, Japanese papers, bonefolder, shipping clerk’s knife, Xacto blade, lightweight awl, waxed-linen thread, needle, tea, happiness.
