D.I.Y. Perfect Binding

Making a book, zine, or journal that has 30+ pages? Looking to try something different than staples and heavy folded binding? Then “do it yourself” perfect binding it just the workshop you need. In this single-session class, you’ll learn fast and simple solutions for folding, stacking, stitching and binding that use inexpensive materials and leave you with a clean flat spine that can hold text. Your covers will lie flat, and a spine on the shelf says something.
