Did you ever want to learn how to make your own handbound leather notebooks...?
Next Saturday, 4th July 2009, I'm hosting a hands-on bookbinding workshop where I'll be teaching the steps involved in making an A6-sized softcover leather notebook from scratch.
It's an afternoon workshop, running from 12:30 until 5:30, and it'll be held at the groovy Vibewire space in Ultimo (525 Harris St, across the road from the Ian Thorpe Swimming Centre). The class is $40 and all the book-making materials are provided (leather, paper, bookbinding thread), but you'll need to bring your own tools (Stanley knife, steel ruler, cutting mat, and a sewing needle).
I'll also be bringing along a number of different examples of cross-structure bound books, so you can select the style you wish to make. And of course, after you learn how to fold, cut and sew your book, you'll be able to take it home with you at the end of the workshop.
There are still spaces available, so if you're interested in coming along to the workshop you can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there :)
