Bookbinding: Fiber Journal

Course Overview

Ever find yourself trying to remember exactly what plants you used for that dye bath? What weight of yarn you started that knitting project with? That great felting design you dreamed up at 2 am? Every fiber artist needs a journal to record the 'knitty gritty' details of their finished creations, along with ideas for the next ones.  In this introductory bookbinding class, you'll bind a 7 x 10 hard-cover, multi-section book, perfect for recording your wooly endeavors or for any other journaling use. Design an inset cover around something you bring from home (maybe something you made at last year's Fiber Retreat) - depending on its size, in a small inset window, as an inset strip or "puzzle" piece, covering the front or back, or even wrapping around the entire book. The instructor will provide all other materials. Craft a journal that is uniquely yours.
