Join Suzan as she shows attendants an European bookbinding technique attributed all the way back to the 1500s!

This method features exposed sewing, so the stitching holding the book together is visible on the spine, creating an aesthetically unique book. Suzan will also incorporate slotted covers, using non-leather, contemporary materials. Come and learn more about this ancient method to create your own sketchbooks!

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Granville Island or contact them at 604‑736‑7028 to register.
