Book Binding Workshop with Paul Vogel

Book Binding Workshop with Paul Vogel, owner, Vogel Bindery

For over 20 years, the Vogel Bindery has been crafting books entirely by hand using traditional techniques virtually unchanged for 300 years.

Approximately forty steps go into the making of a book. Starting with 100% cotton rag paper that is cut, folded, and sewn together by hand to become the text block and ending with the final step of hand-tooling a design in 24 K gold onto the leather cover. Each step is carefully considered and meticulously executed.

Join us for this unique event, perfect for book lovers of all ages! This event will include a talk on the history of books and binding and a hands-on demonstration.  Attendees will bind two small books to take home.
