Private Case Bound Book Workshop

Private Bookbinding Workshop: Case Bound Book
Saturday, July 9th: 10am-6pm.
Location: Anne Elser Private Residence

Spend a full day making your Case Bound Book with folded blank or lined pages, stitched and glued together. Both the front/back covers and spine are cut from raw chipboard you then cover with imported handmade papers (Washi Paper). This functional, decorative work of art makes a great gift for you or someone who would enjoy filling it! Case books are both sturdy and handsome and feature a supported spine, bookmark and headbands. It is the most commonly used book made to last on the library bookshelf. We’ll take a break to eat lunch and by the end of class, you’ll be very proud of your first case bound book. Anne’s private workshops are meaningful and fun and are conducted in her cozy home in Atlanta. Bring your lunch or order out. Min 5/Max 7 students.

Non-refundable pre-payment of $90.00 reserves your spot.
