Materials to Bring: Right angle triangle (small or medium size is o.k.), any additional papers/ephemera that might be used as decoration for book covers (photos/collage elements/etc.), materials or tools for mark-making such as rubber stamps, watercolor pencils, colored inks, ink pads, ect.

Past Student Reviews:
“Jennie had several great tips about bookbinding overall. And she was able to teach us two bindings in one day. Nice to walk away with two books. I liked that she brought in very cool papers, too.”
“Excellent day. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to more.”
“Would definitely take another workshop with Jennie and/or at SFCB.”
“I am not usually keen on sewing but Jennie broke down that portion into manageable steps that made it less intimidating and much more fun!”
