NEW Long-stitch-link-stitch Binding | Bari Zaki

from 195.00

Instructor: Bari Zaki.

Date: Saturday, October 12, 2019 — 11am – 3pm – One seat open

What you’ll make: A beautiful (and practical!) ephemera album, travel journal, or sketchbook with soft covers in your choice of a dozen subtle shades of heavy Saint-Armand 100% cotton printmaking paper.

We begin, as always in our bookbinding classes, by getting acquainted with paper grain and its importance for the finished book. After an overview of the bookbinding tools you will use, you will fold three full-size sheets of drawing paper (with deckled edges) into nine page signatures to create a nice thickness. You will make your cover from a luscious sheet of handmade paper.

You can configure your stitching to create one of several different delightful patterns.

Finally, we will reinforce our covers with thick watercolour paper for added sturdiness. And create a pocket/envelope for the interiors of your front and back covers. Your book will still open completely flat. We rejoice.

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

Our studio is light-filled, airy, and organized. You are welcome to browse our extensive library of books about bookbinding, calligraphy, and drawing. We look forward to sharing our love of papers & bookbinding with you in this three-ish hour workshop! You will also receive a bone folder, and a 20% discount on any additional tools purchased the day of class.
