Belgian Book Binding Workshop


Belgian or "Secret Belgian" binding is a contemporary style book that combines the look of Japanese stab binding with the functionality of a Coptic sketchbook.  It looks complicated but is easy to learn.  No experience is necessary to join in this workshop, and you will make a completed blank book in one day.

This workshop runs from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. with a one hour lunch break at a natural stopping point.


Participants will be guided through covering boards with decorative paper, choosing a pattern for piercing and sewing the covers together, fold gatherings, and stitch them into place.

The resulting journal is a stylish and functional notebook that makes a statement blending contemporary and ancient styles.

Cost: $50
