Make Simple Sewn Books

April 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In honor of Earth Day, we will be constructing a 5”x7” book, using all kinds of paper that you have on hand.

Melanie will show you how to construct a Vegan handmade book from cover to cover; you can choose to make your softcover book with a faux leather or faux suede finish.
We will bind the journal pages using either the traditional “coptic” (hand-sewn) method or the no-sew method.
In this workshop you will construct a beautiful and functional book, ready to use for journaling or scribing your next great novel!  Perhaps you will elect to convert your book into a “scrap journal,” “junk journal,” or “smash book” — Melanie will include examples and offer suggestions for taking your book to the next level of construction.

No animals will be harmed in the making of this journal!

Please register through Eventbrite to receive your zoom link and supply list.

If you are local to the Dedham Library in MA, we have some supplies we can share with you.  After you register, please contact Gianna to arrange for curbside pick up of supplies –
