Making a small coptic journal for your large thoughts!

In this workshop, we’ll learn some basic bookmaking techniques, such as building a book block, finding the grain of paper, piercing, sewing, drilling, designing the perfect cover.

The finished product, handmade by you, will be a perfect little journal to carry everywhere with you. Nothing extra is needed for this workshop, unless you would like to bring a few personal embellishments for the cover - buttons, ribbons, photos, smallish baubles, etc.

About the instructor

Denise is a graduate of The New Brunswick College of Craft & Design where she received her Certificate in Specialty Photography. Her guilty pleasure was taking multiple book-binding classes while she was there! Denise says: “From a very early age I loved paper. I love how it smells, how it feels, how fun it is to create with. I’ve been creating one-of-a-kind books for over 10 years, teaching fun & not-too-fussy workshops in NB and NS.”
