Intro to Book Binding

June 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us at The Inventor Center on June 3rd from 6:00-8:00 p.m. as Shannon Kelly guides us through the process of making a hardcover, single-section pamphlet book. Students will learn techniques including sewing a text block, attaching a hard cover, glueing down endpages, and applying book cloth. Tools used include a bone folder, awl, bookbinding needle, and book press.

This is a great stand-alone class, and is also one of the recommended prerequisites to Shannon’s more advanced bookbinding workshops to come!

No prior bookbinding experience is required. Age 16+*

*Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
