In this online hands-on workshop, you will learn how to make a single section hand-bound book with hard covers and find out about basic bookbinding techniques, including folding, making endpapers, sewing, covering and casing in. We will go through all the different tools and materials we will be using as well as the importance of the paper used. You will leave with your own finished book and a handout with instructions to enable you to work on your own projects.
