Bookbinding Workshop – Slipcase Construction

Interested in constructing a beautiful slipcase to “house” a favorite book or set of books?
Participants in this class will build one slipcase in class and learn to adapt the basic model to accommodate different sizes of books.
Using a standard size hardback journal as our base (this book is provided), participants will measure, cut, cover, and assemble a four-sided, lined slipcase to house the journal.
Additionally, participants will apply the slipcase formula to measure and cut slipcase boards for a book of their choice.
Participants will complete the second slipcase at home using their own decorative paper.
