Simple Book Bindings

  • Main Library 3650 Summit Boulevard West Palm Beach, FL, 33406 United States (map)

Join instructor, Sammi McLean, in this short, intensive workshop aimed towards artists who are looking for quick and pain free ways to bind their book projects. Students will learn multiple variations of the pamphlet stitch binding and the Japanese stab binding as well as the x-book. These bindings are quick and easy and can be used to add a handmade touch to zines or other book projects without the need for large studio equipment or glue. Participants will learn to prepare their paper, calculate where to punch the holes, how to punch the paper, and how to sew it all together. Each student will leave with 2-5 small handmade books with the option to decorate covers with hand-carved stamps.
