The Ancient Art of Bookbinding

Explore the ancient art of ​long-stitch ​bookbinding. With ceremony and intention, Erica Ekrem will hold space for you to step into your role as a maker. Each woman will stitch a leather journal from a prepared kit.

We will engage the breath to alleviate stress and access creative flow. We will imbue our work with intention and personal magic by exploring the powerful connection between heart and hands. We will quiet the mind by bringing awareness to the creative flow of breath and the focused movement of the hands. We will weave spines of colored thread and bring into being containers to hold all that we are and all that we are becoming.

Come to sit in your truth and share your story among sisters. Depart with a journal in your hands, and in your heart, the empowered ability to make another.

$35 material fee (trades welcome) / Up to 10 students per 3hr class. ​

The Ancient Art of Bookbinding will be shared by Erica Ekrem.
