Longstitch bookbinding is a Medieval technique practised by both guild bookbinders and amateurs. Straight forward stitching results in a complex visual that resembles the many stringed mandolin. Each student will complete at least one softcover book ideal for sketching or journaling.

No prior experience is necessary. All materials and tools will be provided. All supplies are vegan.
