Bookmaking Class: Make your own Journal with Wood Covers and Secret Belgian Binding 10/16

Make your own hand-bound, beautiful – and useful – journal at this Bookmaking Class at Tear Cap Workshops in Hiram, Maine.

The Secret Belgian Binding is a contemporary book binding style with lots of room for creativity, inside and out. The covers can be collaged on, made of recycled material or wood. In class we’ll use reclaimed wooden covers, weave the covers together and sew in pages. No previous book binding experience is necessary. All of the tools and supplies you need will be provided, as well as instructions for you to take home and continue making books.
