Event Navigation

Materials saved from the landfill:
paper, leather

Skills you’ll learn:
Longstitch bookbinding, awl, bonefolder

An older, German bookbinding technique, the Longstitch, uses a single thread to sew multiple sections into a leather cover. Traditional tools such as a bonefolder and a bookbinder’s awl will be used to prepare the upcycled materials. Each participant will create a small, unique and functional book whose pages open completely, perfect for sketching, notetaking, or other recordkeeping.
