Who this class is for?
Beginners and experienced bookmakers and art journalers. With four different bookmaking techniques that range from simple to more complex, this class is for someone who has never made a book of their own before, and also for the more daring who want to explore different techniques.

Tiffany tells us about this course.

Sewing Machine Strongly Recommended for this Course

Tiffany strongly recommends using a sewing machine for this class. Sewing adds a nice, finishing touch as well as provides more stability in the construction of each of the 4 books. However, you can get away without having one if you use a very reliable glue that will hold fabric and heavier pieces of cardstock together.

Experimentation and Problem Solving

Tiffany enjoys creating customized journals and using various materials in order to create books that are not only functional, but beautiful!

One of Tiffany's goals when she creates is to use the materials that she has been collecting, many of them from other hobbies. She enjoys giving new life to the fabrics that she's been collecting for decades, and the pages from vintage books that were gifted to her by her husband for their 20th anniversary. Every book that Tiffany makes feels special to her, and she loves the unique qualities of each one. Tiffany enjoys trying out new binding styles, new closure methods, and different combinations of materials.

In this class, Tiffany will be teaching four different ways to construct circular books. However, all of the techniques learned in the lessons will easily apply to any book no matter the shape or size.
