We have finished the first day of the Crossed Structure Binding. The covers were cut (faux emu upholstery fabric) and then we relaxed into painting pages. The photos show some of the early efforts and students will be painting six sides for tomorrow’s class. We will be sewing the Basic CSB—the first sewing for many of the students. I’m making a huge model of their book as a demo and will use a large needle and yarn to guide them as they learn the long stitch and kettle stitch. Pictures to follow! You can see that everyone has their own sense of color and design; they will also have options for the covers. I’m looking forward to tomorrow!
