With bookmaker and creative writer, Nikki Thompson of Deconstructed Artichoke Press, start out making books out of a sheet of paper. Then move to a simple pamphlet sewn together with a figure-eight stitch, followed by two signatures (a group of about 16 pages) sewn as one with a surprise sewn in the middle. The class will finish out with an elaborate sewing of a pamphlet with link stitches along the spine

You will need a bone folder, awl, needle, X-acto knife, ruler, cutting mat, scissors, and pencil (if you do not already have these the instructor will have them available for you to borrow). $60 price includes materials fee.
