NEW Duo of Two-signature Stitched Booklets | Bari Zaki

from 195.00

Instructor: Bari Zaki.

Date: Saturday, April 13 — 11am–3pm

What you’ll make: A pair of elegant slim booklets, each sewn with a different stitch.

Covers will be scored and folded from heavy Saint-Armand 100% cotton rag stock. You will select your cover papers from a dozen sorbet-fresh colours, all mouldmade in Montreal. Your interior pockets (front and back) will retain the original deckle. Dressy! Interior pages (8) are creamy Stonehenge cover weight.

Dimensions: 5¾ x 7½ x ½

Stitching patterns: Alpha (alternating loops) & Standing Z’s (logically, the A-stitch is shown on top & the Z-stitch on the bottom).

Stitching: Select a waxed linen thread to complement your cover colour.

By the end of this class you will have two completed booklets, 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.

Class fee includes all materials we use to make three booklets: Mouldmade cotton cover, Stonehenge cover, bonefolder, shipping clerk’s knife, lightweight awl, Xacto blade, ruler, triangle ruler, waxed-linen thread, needle, tea, happiness.

Class Size: 3 students. (Also offered as a private or semiprivate four-hour class. No previous bookbinding experience necessary. To request a date & time, add this class to your cart, and then email bz@barizaki.com with your preferred date(s) and time of day.)

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 four-hour workshop!
