Case Bound Bookbinding Weekend Workshop!

Seats are still available for this weekend's workshop. Come sit with me and have a blast. I cut all the board and paper for you. Easy and fun. :)

Case-Bound Bookbinding Weekend Workshop with Anne Elser
Sat, Feb. 23 - Sun, Feb. 24 - $190
All Levels
Min 5/Max 10 students.

Spend a delightful weekend making your own Case Bound Book! Learn to make a book block of pierced and folded blank pages that are stitched together and then glued. Create a custom cover and spine with raw chipboard you then cover with imported handmade papers (Washi Paper). Case books are both sturdy and handsome and feature a supported spine, bookmark and headbands. It is the most recognized book type and is built to last on bookshelves for years to come. This functional, decorative work of art makes a great gift for you or someone who would enjoy filling it! We’ll take a break to eat lunch both days and by the end of class, you’ll be very proud of your first Case Bound book.
