Bookbinding and Stamping Workshop: 2-Week Series

This is a two-week series and sessions will occur 1-3pm on Sunday, April 7 and the following Sunday, April 14.

During this two-week workshop, students will create their own paper booklet and hand carved stamps. In the first week, students will learn different stitches to bind their own booklets made from handmade paper (already made).

In the second week, students will learn the basics of stamp carving on a rubber stamp pad, and design and carve their own fun and unique stamps which you will then use to print on your hand-sewn booklet. Please bring your own hand towel for drying and transportation. Participants only need to sign up one time.
