This workshop is dedicated to the beloved extra thick, multi-color page, buttonhole-stitch book. We will make the exact book shown here, with 18 different colors of Hahnemuille Bugra text paper, alternating the colors as you see fit. Hahnemuille Bugra paper is an all-around fabulous paper, good for a multitude of mediums; pen & ink, sharpie, watercolor, pastel, conte or crayon... and of course, graphite & color pencil!!
This binding style is wonderful to use as a sketchbook, photo album, or journal, or to make and give as a gift anytime of the year!
Tools for folding, scoring and cutting, including handmade paper cover, text pages, waxed linen thread & Italian cotton ribbon are included in the cost of this class.
AND, our new & improved instructional handout includes charming step-by-step illustrations drawn by Emmy Kennett; our nimble shop assistant.
