Beginner’s Book Binding Art
Before mass production, artisans made books one page at a time and stitched them together by hand before encasing them in a uniquely fitted cover. Explore bookbinding history by looking at examples in the Kentucky Historical Society collections, create your own unique journal that puts a modern twist on traditional hardcover Coptic stitch book and try out our mini clamshell printing press.
For ages 18+, but ages 13-17 are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
Kentucky Historical Society members pay $15.
Registration is required no later than Jan. 9. Space is limited. Call 502-782-8118 or email KHSeducation@ky.gov.
Payment is due the day of the workshop. Workshops begin by checking in at the front desk.
