Event Overview

The Quarter Leather Longstitch is a classy, elegant, and durable style of bookbinding. This binding style features a leather spine with a combination of long straight stitches and braided link stitches. In this workshop, you will make from scratch a hearty 6” x 9” book with hard covers and a 1” spine.


Students will learn about the properties of paper (like paper weight and paper grain), how to handle a variety of bookbinding tools (like bone folders, book board, glue, methylcellulose), and common book arts terminology. Our one-day bookbinding workshops are a great way for students with bookbinding experience to refresh or hone skills but also offer beginning students a taste of the art form. 


Each student is asked to bring one large sheet of lightweight decorative paper to allow everyone to customize their book.  

What to Bring

One large sheet of decorative paper.

What's Provided

Covers, inside pages, thread, needles and all other supplies.
