Bookbinding at Common Room Studio

  • Common Room Studio 428 Hume Avenue Alexandria, VA (map)


Join me for an afternoon of bookbinding, reflection, and journaling. How can bookbinding and writing shift our focus and bring more clarity and joy into our lives? In this class, we'll explore the how-to's of bookbinding, and the benefits of a daily writing practice -- two amazing tools we can use to stay grounded on the path of self-discovery.

You'll learn about bookbinding tools and processes and walk away with two hand stitched journals, made by you, and the tools needed to make your own journals at home. We'll also explore a list of ways to use your journal - perfect for staying grounded amidst the winter holiday season. 

Keep both journals, or keep one and give one away!

Ticket price includes all materials needed to make two notebooks in class, along with a take-home tool kit for creating your own journals at home, in addition to light snacks and refreshments. This class is perfect for anyone who is interested in bookbinding, journaling, writing, or simply learning a new skill and is a great compliment to our earlier paper marbling class.
