Simple Stitches: Book Binding with ShannonBIG!NYC Gowanus (69 9th St, Brooklyn, NY 11215) Map it $40
Come hang out with us and learn all the basics of book binding- reuse style! We will begin by making a simple single signature work book, with a few options for how to stitch it up, and then we will move on to make our books bigger. The class will finish with learning to make multiple signature books using a variety of materials for covers. A variety of recycled materials will be available for your use. The speed of this class will depend upon the students' wants; please bring any items you have been saving that you may want to bind together.
