The lost art of bookbinding makes a comeback

It’s a craft that developed in the 15th century and Michelle Lackenby wants you involved in the production process of your own hardcover, soft spine book. In this workshop, the expert bookmaker will guide you through the importance of paper direction and grain, and you’ll be given the reins to sew your own book. No experience is necessary, and all materials will be provided.
