In this new bookmaking class, you’ll create a soft leather book using a medieval structure and a timeless stitch. With soft flexible leathers you will create a small pocket sized book with a suede wraparound strap or a button. Learn the basics of working with leather and take home a journal perfect for on the go use. Please note: This class is a part of Rochester Brainery's "What A Crafty Weekend: Playing with Paper"!
