A Virtual Workshop!


Learn how to build one of the most essential tools for your bookbinding practice: a book cradle. In this 2 hour class students will use binder’s board to build a sturdy book cradle to use for punching signatures at home. Students will be able to adjust the proportions of the cradle for their own needs.


Note: Registration closes August 8, 2020 to allow time for students to purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.


PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
