Ever wonder what to do with those beautiful scraps of fabric that are too precious to toss out—those carefully folded samples from surface design classes or those exotic textiles found on your travels? 

Then imagine how wonderful it would be to make your own journals filled with blank pages and covered with your textiles!

This class will introduce you to two great bookbinding techniques: a concertina Coptic journal and a fabulous sketchbook. You’ll learn all the steps of beginning book-making—from folding and tearing your own pages to transforming your own fabric into book covers. 

You will never be without a book again!
