Painted Longstitch / Linkstitch Bookbinding

$ 88.00$ 163.63

Join us for a day of creative book making!  Students will be introduced to the basics of decorating cover paper with acrylic paint and a variety of tools.  Followed by a quick introduction to bookbinding and the tools of the trade, students will then learn the Longstitch/Linkstitch bookbinding technique and incorporate the decorated papers.

This will be a 6 signature softcover book, with delightful pattern of long stitches down the spine and chaining, or link stitches at the top and bottom.  If there’s time, students will learn how to wrap the long stitches for an aesthetically pleasing finish.  Everyone will leave with their own handcrafted, softcover book!
