Join us for this workshop where we will create a Longstitch bound book. The leather cover is perfect for throwing in your bag for your next adventure!
The pages of your finished book will lay flat, which is great for drawing and writing. And the paper used will work well with various pens, pencils and markers. In this class you will see examples of other Longstitch books, make a finished book, and explore different variations. You'll leave with a finished book ready for sketching or taking notes.
