To register, please go here:!event/2020/9/29/make-a-laser-cut-bounded-book-virtual-learning

Create a notebook as adventurous as you. This traveler’s notebook uses the Coptic binding method. This unique binding method is one of the oldest in human history, dating back as early as the second century. It allows the book to lay flat when opened to any page, making it great for sketchbooks. Notebook measures 5.75” x 8.75” when done. You can have a name or phrase laser etched on the cover. Follow along virtually as you construct the notebook!

This class will be presented virtually via Zoom and class connection information will be sent out prior to the class.

Upon registration, you will be asked for the line of text which you would like to have personalized on the book as well as a font selection from a select number of choices. You will be emailed to coordinate how to purchase the required class materials ($20).

CMS members can take this class in person for free, as long as they use CMS tools and are on site the night of the class.

Recommended age range: 10 & up (Adult Supervision Suggested)

This class is presented free & registration is required. Registration closes 9/23/20.
