Past Student Reviews:

“Made a lot of things in a short amount of time. It was a good pace. I like the review of tools and where to get supplies.”

“The class was great. It was my first time at the Center for the Book, I had a wonderful time and look forward to attending other events/classes.”

“Bettina was great and informative. She helped me a lot when I didn’t understand the steps. Or was patient with repeating what I couldn’t hear.”

“It got me interested in book arts for sure! Will look into more workshops for the future. Thank you!!”
