Craft With Us!- Simple Book Binding, March 5th

An example of the books we will be making

In honor of the One by One exhibition the Study Center will be featuring a free bookbinding workshop on Saturday, March 5th. We will be making accordion style books out of vintage road maps, which has already got me daydreaming of fun summer road trips even though it is only Febuary! Our last workshop was an awesome way to spend an afternoon and this workshop promises to be the same!

Happy Crafters at Our Last Event!

The book binding workshop will be offered at 12 and 3 pm, it is free, and materials are provided. Recommended for ages 8 and up. Reserve your space asap by emailing or calling 310-659-9022. Last minute Saturday RSVPs, call: 323-95-0610. It is sure to be an inspiring afternoon well spent, so come craft with us! 
Your instructors will be Susie & Heidi Bauer, designers of Rock Scissor Paper stationery and creators of the blog,
