In this 2-hour workshop, you will learn to create a lay-flat book with hard cover and heavyweight pages using the heifer hitch binding technique. This book structure is perfect for small journals or photo books. You will create three finished HH books—two sizes, plus your 3” x 4” learning model. No art experience necessary, but some bookbinding knowledge is helpful. BARN will mail the materials for the three books to registered students.
