February Project: Paste Paper & Pamphlet Binding!

Paste papers are an artisan craft dating back from the 1600’s. They are easy to make and lots of fun…and we wanna teach you how to make them!

Here’s a link to learn more about the craft and the process we’ll be using:

Working in tandem with our partners in crime, Laughing Mouse Press, we’ll be teaching you techniques in paste paper decoration and pamphlet binding.

We’ll be taking two months!

In February, we’ll be learning the art of paste paper and, in March (the 27th of March to be exact), we’ll take the beautiful work that we’ve created and turn them into handmade books!

The project, in total, for both workshops is $20.
Or, if you’re just interested in the paste paper or book making individually, the projects are $12 respectively.
Cash at the door OR come with your credit/debit and we’ll employ our cool little smart phone cube if you prefer that method of payment!

The cap on this project is 20 people! So, hurry and RSVP so you won’t miss out!


Also, please note, an RSVP means YOU ARE COMING and that we will be purchasing materials for you.
If you RSVP & you can’t make it, please let us know in advance so we can fill the spot with someone else.

We’ll handle all the materials…so, you just come ready to learn, party, and walk away with some lovely & practical handmade art pieces.

Same as before, we’ll be doing this over at Three Kings and you should bring something tasty to nibble and some dough for cocktails or sodas!

We can’t wait to see you good lookin’ ninjas again so soon and we hope some new people will drop by as well! Invite your friends!

  1. Do you have a little more info. on the book-binding portion of the festivities?

    • Heather,

      We’ll be doing pamphlets using the paste paper that we’ve made.
      They’re usually sort of small toy books or a little larger.
      In the past we’ve employed the pamphlet stitch and I think that we’ll do something similar to that!
      If you’re interested, I’ll keep you on our list…
      Stay in touch, yes?
