Learn the basics of bookbinding and make your own sketchbook in this Craft Lake City workshop at West Elm! Artist and designer Hannah Bleak of Sagemark Text will introduce workshop attendees to basic bookbinding tools like thread, awls, paper, and book board. Then Hannah will teach participants how to use the ancient Egyptian coptic stitch technique to sew a hardbound 5x7 journal. Attendees will have the option to use pre-made book covers or to engage their creativity and paint their own. Join us to make a sketchbook to keep for yourself or to give as a perfect gift for Mother’s Day!
