Create a special journal to document your upcoming travels or keep track of your daily journals! In our Leather Journal Bookbinding workshop, Chelsea will show you step-by-step how to bind up a thick journal insert full of plenty of mixed paper for your future sketches and journaling.

We'll also stitch together a luscious leather cover to keep it all wrapped up and protected. With your newfound bookbinding skills, you can bind up more inserts for your leather cover to keep the adventures going for many years to come! 

Chelsea, maker and artist behind Sketchy Notions will be coming all the way from California to lead this incredible workshop!

You will learn the history of book binding as well as hands-on instruction as you stitch a genuine leather sketchbook cover. You will also learn how to bind your paper to create inserts for your book cover so you can continue to use your beautiful leather cover over and over again.
