Pamphlet stitch is the perfect beginner level class to get introduced into the book arts. Make little sketchbooks, zines, journals, field notes and more! Learn how to prepare papers from squaring to cutting, folding and scoring. Learners will gain techniques that allow them to customize the cover, adding their own design element. We’ll also show you variations on the pamphlet stitch that allows the potential to build a thicker and more substantial book. Participants will leave with 1 basic sample book and 1 custom book.
- Techniques covered: checking paper grain, how to square edges, measuring, preparing the cover, punching holes and basic sewing.
- Participants will leave with at least 2 pamphlet stitched books – 1 basic sample book, 1 customized and with the possibility of making more.
- Perfect start to Buttonhole Binding!
