Punch & Awl: Book Binding for Beginners

  • Poetry Barn 1693 New York 28A West Hurley, NY, 12491 United States (map)

We’ll provide the tools: punch, awl, needles, twine, bone folders, paper. You provide the creativity. You’ll learn two simple methods of creating and binding a book, hands-on, which you can then take home with you. The techniques we will use are the Japanese four-hole stab and pamphlet-stitching.
