You will receive a supply and tool list prior to the workshop. The sequence of events: surface techniques on paper, staining Tyvek, making the accordion spine, lunch break, making signatures, sewing the spine and cover, and sharing your books with the other students and Marci.

Marci will also provide a printable .pdf document with directions, a jig, and concept prompts.

Limited to 15 students; held on Zoom. $69 per person (no materials included). Questions? Email
