{Workshop} Bookbinding Basics



January is an exciting month! Yes, it's wintry and cold in my little corner of the world, but it's also a time for new beginnings and new ventures! I'm delighted to announce that, starting this month, I will be teaching workshops at Blick Art Materials in Evansville, Indiana. My first class is all about creating handmade books using the fun and easy pamphlet stitch. If you've always wanted to learn how to make your own journals, memory books, notebooks, and more, this is the class for you! The class is scheduled for Saturday, January 21st at 2 pm, and you can visit my workshop page for all the details! Hope to see you there!
