Book Making Class

Date: Sunday, February 16th 

Time: 2:00pm-4:00pm 

Location: 26 E Broadway Ave Muskegon Heights MI 49444 (Read Muskegon)

 

In this hands-on creative book arts workshop you will learn the basics of making decorative books and journals, and will have the opportunity to engage in the process by making two different types of stitched-spine books.

"My love of decorative book arts stems from a passion for pretty paper, an obsession with blank books and journals, and a love of the creative process. I find immense pleasure and freedom in crafting raw materials - sheets of paper, cardboard, leather, thread- into a pretty and functional journal. The options are unlimited for types of paper, pattern and color combinations, book styles... each book is a unique piece of art reflective of my mood at the time it was constructed."- Debra Boogaard
