Each group of pages will be wrapped in origami papers and covered in your choice of leather, KraftTex or cork fabric. You will have a choice of closure options using either a button, bead tie, or a metal button stud. All class supplies are provided, however please feel free to bring your own buttons or beads if you like.

During the class you will learn basic book making skills that can aid you in making books on your own.  This class is open to all skill levels and is appropriate for ages 10 or older.
