A Special Workshop

Why buy a new journal or sketchbook when you can create your own? This weekend, the Morgan Conservatory hosts a special workshop teaching attendees how to create your own softcover journals and sketchbooks. Taught by Cleveland-based artist Kyle Holland, the workshop introduces the fundamentals of bookbinding and the tools and techniques to make high quality softcover books. Learn how to fold paper, punch holes and sew with the proper tension to make both pamphlets and multi-section books. Beyond the basics, Holland will discuss how to embellish the books with enhancements, such as exposed sewing and decorative spine reinforcement. At the end of the weekend, guests will leave with at least three books and the knowledge to create many more. Currently, the Workshop and Sales Coordinator at the Morgan Conservatory, Holland studied printmaking, papermaking and book arts at Memphis College of Art and supplemented his studies through a Scholarship for Advanced Studies in Book Arts at the New York Center for Book Arts. The workshop takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both today and tomorrow. The cost of the workshop is $150 per person, and no prior experience is required. For a complete supply list, visit the Morgan Conservatory’s website. (Usmani)
