Bookbinding II

  • Schack Art Center (map)

Jul 31-Aug 28, Wednesdays 6-9 pm
Ages: Adult - 18+
Instructor: Cat Snapp
Location: Schack Art Center (2921 Hoyt Ave., Everett, WA), Printmaking Studio

Over 5 weeks, you will learn four fun and rewarding bookbinding structures: Drum Leaf with Soft Cover, Long Stitch with Soft Cover, Coptic with Hard Cover and Cased-In French Link Stitch with Kettle Stitch. Each new binding builds off of skills learned in previous weeks. This is the perfect class if you love writing, drawing, painting, journaling, scrapbooking, working with your hands or if you've always wondered how books are made. You will learn a new structure each week with an extra class at the end to allow time to complete bindings with instructor guidance, if needed.

Everyone will walk away with a set of their very own hand bound books and references and resources you need to do it all again at home.

What you'll get (and keep):
• 12-15 hours of personalized workshop instruction
• Set of 4 hand bound books you've created
• Use of tools during the workshop
• Exclusive discounts at Cat Snapp Studio
