“Beginning Bookmaking – Molly Wilbanks

Learn the basics of bookmaking with an artful approach. This class will teach proper bookmaking techniques such as paper folding, gluing, basic bindings, and variations for covers. Bring your own paper and go home with a 3-hole pamphlet stitch journal, and more. A small supply list will be provided with registration. Binder’s thread and tools will be supplied for use during class.”

This class is totally worth it! In my class, There Will Be Books! We will learn the basics of binding, and then we’ll have a bookmaking free-for-all For Two Hours, y’all! You can make a lot of journal-style books in two hours! The only limit will be how much paper you bring with you! A regular size, college notebook will get you two fatty, 4x9ish size journals, or 4 thin, quarter-page size journals. Go to the craft store and buy a 9×12 charcoal paper pad, or 9×12 drawing paper pad, and you’ll be good for two sturdy, fatty journals. Grab a ream of printer paper, card stock or non, and you can make a ton of journals! If you desire, bring fancy card stock for soft covers! Seriously! PAPER IS ALL YOU NEED! 

I’ll bring a number of hand-outs with lists! List of resources, online & local, lists of inspiration, lists of instructions, so you can CONTINUE making journal-style books after class! Click here to REGISTER. I’ll see you there.
