    Quick And Easy Leather Journal Workshop Make a small leather journal in a jiffy using the button hole stitch binding technique. One of the beauties of this open spine binding is the repetitive wrapping on the spine, which echoes the folds of the exposed sections. The opening in the spine allows for endless variation by changing the shape of the opening, and layering cover materials.

    Three Japanese Bindings Workshop This very decorative style is based on a method commonly used in Japan and provides a simple solution to the problem of binding single leaves. It involves a technique called “stab sewing” which uses the thread or ribbon as a decorative feature on the outside cover. The technique can be applied in a variety of ways, and books can be made from a wide range of materials. Very little glue is needed for this binding as it is the form of sewing that holds the book together.

    Basic Long Stitch Journal Workshop In this half-day workshop, you will make a basic long stitch model with a paper cover. The Long stitch binding technique dates from the 14th century. The sections of the book are sewn directly through the spine of the cover material, with two sections being sewn through each set of holes. The possibilities for variation and elaboration of the basic stitch are limited only to one’s imagination.

No previous experience necessary, but it helps if you are comfortable using a needle and thread.
