Unfold the art of timeless bookbinding craftsmanship in this 3-part workshop series on hardcover bookbinding at the Maker Hub! In this first session, we’ll be talking through the process of creating hardcover books and work to create a book block. At the end of the session you'll leave with a fully stitched book block which you can bring to the second workshop “All About Glue”. If you attend all 3 workshops, you will leave with a full hardcover book made by hand!

Note: Close-toed shoes must be worn in the Maker Hub. Please see the Maker Hub website for all Maker Hub rules.
