May 13, 10-12pm Traveler's Journal Book Making Workshop.  Oxford Municipal Building, 11 Green Street.  Free for members, $30 for Non-members.   

The Traveler’s Journal is a great way to collect favorite papers together so the signatures can be easily replaced as needed while continuing to reuse a favorite cover.  

While Traveler’s Journals can have soft or hard covers, we’ll be upcycling old hard cover books to use for our cover. You can bring your own hard cover book or use one that Pam will provide. A little bit of fabric can be used to jazz up the spine, or not – your choice. The interior pages will be made from 80# sulphite paper which is good for writing, journaling and light watercolor sketches and bound together with a simple pamphlet stitch.  Once you learn this technique you can create replacement signatures using any paper that you want.

Tools & Supplies needed:

  • ·  A Readers Digest or any old hard cover book that you’re not going to mind cutting up(dictionary, novel etc) that is approximately 5.5” wide x 7.5” tall and with a spine that is at approximately 1” – 1.5” wide. Smaller or slightly larger books are fine too.
  • ·  Pencil, scissors, craft knife or rotary cutter, ruler, cutting mat (self-healing or cardboard), sharp awl (or something similar to poke holes with), needle and some masking tape.
  • ·   Glue Stick.
  • ·  A thick magazine or book binding cradle would be helpful when punching holes in the signatures, but not required.   
  • ·  A strip of fabric that is approximately 6 times the height of the book & 2 – 3” wide.  Useful if you would like to hide the spine of the book.
  • · Decorative buttons are optional and can be added later at home.
