Event Details

Come and join the Gypsy Caravan and make a one-of-a-kind handmade book. This book could become a travel journal, writing notebook, art journal or a unique gift for your family and friends.

The book is made from inexpensive materials that most of us have around the house. The completed structure size is 8” x 6”, 28 pages, 3 signatures secured with a sewn pamphlet stitch. I will show you how to add a special closure that will tie or wrap around the book. Cover paper will be decorated with your own handmade stamp created in class. Students will go home with a completed book and detailed instructions. I know that once you have made this book you will want to create many more. This will be the year that you give that really unique holiday gift.

All materials provided by instructor. If you have special ribbon, button or beads to embellish to personalize your journal, it, bring to class.
