Yep, it’s a trilogy! I just can’t get enough of them. 🙂
In Leather Pocket Journals Part III, you’ll learn 5 bindings (possibly more) that use only leather, paper, and thread – no glue needed! For each binding, you’ll sew 3 sections of folded pages into covers cut from one piece of leather.
These bindings are very flexible and allow the books to open completely flat, making them perfect for use as sketchbooks or journals.
Each sewing technique creates a different decorative sewing pattern on the spine and we’ll try out different closure methods. These sewings are different from the ones taught in Parts I and II and you didn’t have to attend those classes to attend this one.
No previous experience required – this is a great class for a beginner. You can even bring in your own leather to customize your book.
Materials fee: $15.00 to the instructor
Supplies: Awl, bonefolder, metal ruler, X-Acto knife or utility knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil.
Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.
