Last night I conducted a little workshop at Halifax's most wonderful stationery shop, Duly Noted. I took ten folks through the process of making a soft-cover leather journal with a simple long stitch binding. As you can see, busy hands:
And a rather lovely collection of journals! Most of the participants were completely new to the bookbinding process, and everyone still finished up with a great book.
The kind folks of Duly Noted even provided wine and cheese so it was an enjoyable evening all around. There are some other crafty workshops coming up soon at Duly Noted, so if you want to get in on the action making things and drinking wine at the same time... just let them know! Here's some info about the other workshops. Thanks to everyone who came and made books with me last night, it was great fun.
