Making a small coptic journal for your large thoughts!

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

The finished product, hand made 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.

Materials to bring: Utility knife (sharp construction grade knife, available at your local hardware store), metal ruler, pencil, clean cutting board or cutting mat.

About the Instructor: Instructor Denise Rowe

Denise is a graduate from 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.”
