“Simple Chain Binding Notebooks”

Both workshops will teach participants how to take everyday items and recycle them with the addition of paper and thread into functional books that can be used for journaling, notes, sketching, or just your shopping list. Both bindings are simple and suitable for a novice with no book binding experience.
