Calling All Bookworms! Learn Bookbinding At This DIY Class

Bookworms, listen up! Thanks to popular demand, this Wednesday night the new (and amazing!) bookstore Press: Works on Paper is hosting its second bookbinding class. This time 'round, 15 locals will learn slotted-stitch binding, which dates back to the 16th Century, from local expert Jennie Hinchcliff. The $75 class, which is ideal for folks wanting to bind super-special journals and zines all on their own, includes instruction and materials (needles, thread, a bookbinding awl, bone folder, and Goliath pencil) that you can bring back to su casa once class has been dismissed. Oh, and free beer! Interested parties can get the full deets below. And, while we're on the subject of traditional-bookbinding methods, check out this new San Francisco-themed product by locally beloved iPad case-makers DODOcase.
Price: $75; Get tickets here!
When: Wednesday, August 17, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Where: Press: Works on Paper, 3492 22nd Street (between Dolores and Guerrero streets); 415-913-7156.
