Bookbinding Workshop with Cynthia Ahlstrin


Wow…Building a book from scratch!

Participants will also learn to make a simple jig, consider end papers and cover their book with book cloth and decorative paper. This workshop is a great introduction to bookbinding, but also a healthy refresher course for those with some experience in bookbinding. Participants should come prepared with a lunch/snack.
