THE DETAILS
Who: Anyone living in Southern California, or maybe just visiting for the weekend, or maybe you want to fly/drive out here just for the occasion!
.......................................................................................................................................
What: Learn how to make a 5 x 7" book using a copic style binding. This type of bookbinding is fun because you can create the cover from a variety of materials such as wood, Plexiglas, cardstock, binder's board, tile, etc. If you can drill holes through it, you can use it as a cover! I will provide wood covers, or you can bring your own cover materials.
.......................................................................................................................................
Where: To be determined - somewhere in South Pasadena and depending on how many are interested - I will let you know exactly where a few days prior to the workshop.
.......................................................................................................................................
When: Saturday September 17th 2011 from 10am-4pm. Pizza will be provided for lunch.
.......................................................................................................................................
Why: There's nothing quite like the feeling of holding a book you've made all by yourself in your hands. Once you know how to make them, you won't be able to stop! I will give you a detailed list of instructions so you can continue making books for the rest of your life.
.......................................................................................................................................
Cost: $30 workshop fee plus the cost of some materials (around $10-20) which you'll buy beforehand and bring to the workshop. $5 discount if you re-blog this post, tweet about it, Facebook it, or share it elsewhere and send me the link!
.......................................................................................................................................
How: E-mail me (paigetaylorevans@gmail.com) if you are interested in attending or have any questions.
.......................................................................................................................................
Note: If you can't make it but are still interested in learning how to make books, E-mail me or comment below and I just might put together an online tutorial complete with step-by-step photos, a downloadable PDF, and/or a video tutorial. I just want to see if there's enough interest first :)

Testimonial: Lindsey was one of the workshop attendees when I did a workshop a few years ago here's what she has to say, "Ever since I saw Paige's books, I admired them so much that I was determined to learn how to make them. When Paige said she was going to have a bookbinding workshop I am pretty sure I was the first one to sign up. I enjoyed all 6 hours of the workshop. She is such a great teacher, and I still remember to this day how to make them. It was money well spent."
