Join us for a workshop in bookmaking during Downtown State College’s August First Friday!
Gallery staff will lead novice bookmakers of all ages in creating their own basic pamphlet and stab bound books. Drop-ins welcome throughout the evening and no experience necessary!
Additionally, two sewing sessions for advanced bookbinding (ages 12 & up) are available at 5 PM and 6:30 PM. Artist and bookbinder Kristina Davis will introduce the art of pattern binding with a simple and fun demonstration. Participants will have the opportunity to choose their supplies and watch a step by step demonstration for advanced Japanese Stab Bound bookmaking. The participants will then recreate their own patterned sewn binding. Advanced registration strongly recommended as spaces are limited.
