Bookbinding Workshop:  Traveler Series by Melissa Chao of To Boldly Fold. This three and a half hour workshop teaches you bookbinding techniques that will allow you to make a series of books for your journey. Half the class is devoted to making a boxed set of four books that will allow you to carry a small book at all times. The second half of class you will make a larger, multi-section book that can expand as your travel grows. The structure allows room for a collection of mementos, from plane tickets to photographs.


This class teaches an extremely versatile bookbinding structure. It can be used to create many types of books, from a basic book to an elaborate multi-section journal. Learning this structure is a great first step into the world of bookbinding.

Melissa Chao is the artist behind To Boldly Fold. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2009, is a local artist and is passionate about bookbinding. She created our gorgeous guest book and we are thrilled to be hosting her workshop. This is not part of our regular class offering and we have no idea when we'll have the chance to host Melissa again so please sign up while you can.
