A Bookbinding Workshop at a Print Museum


Just a couple of days ago I had the pleasure of teaching a workshop alongside these fine fellows at Mackenzie House Museum here in Toronto.  It was a combination bookbinding & printmaking class, geared at learning traditional techniques and using analogue tools and equipment.  It was great fun, everyone left with a unique journal they handbound and then printed themselves!

The entire month of April is Print Month over at Mackenzie House!  There are more printmaking events happening at the museum, see their website for details.

To see a list of Sprouts Press’ upcoming bookbinding workshops go here.
