This Pop-Up Studio is sold out. Belgian Binding is easy (really it is!) and produces a handsome handmade book that lies flat when opened, making it an ideal structure for a journal, guest book, sketchbook – you name it. The secret lies in how the cover is attached to the text block, which is sewn separately and then woven into the cover. In this workshop you can expect to learn text block preparation, sewing, and cover weaving. No previous binding experience is necessary. You will leave with a completed handmade book, ready to decorate and use to your liking.
Pop-Up Studios are fun opportunities for adults, ages 18 and above, to meet working artists and get in touch with their inner creativity. Each class explores different techniques and media. No previous art experience is needed.
Wine, beer, snacks and materials will be provided.
Cost: $15 for members, $20 for non-members. Space is limited. Register online or contact 724.837.1500 x110 to register.
