Book style: Longstitch binding
We are honored to announce letterpress and book arts educator, Tracy Honn is our guest instructor for this workshop at the Hamilton Museum. Tracy is Senior Artist Emerita from UW-Madison, the former director of Silver Buckle Press and a print historian.
Join this workshop to learn how to create a perfect sketchbook for travels using a long-stitch binding method. This binding allows the book to open flat. The long-stitch notebook can be constructed using soft cover materials such as leather, cloth and sturdy paper.
Create several books using Cave paper for the cover. Use of printing, cut-outs, secret compartments and other embellishments will be demonstrated. You will learn how to plan the binding, prepare the text block and create variations of the long-stitch binding.
All materials and tools are provided. The workshop runs from 9:30am to 5 pm. Space is limited, therefore reservations and a $50 non-refundable deposit are required at registration.
