We'll go over raised and inset designs in paper, fabric and leather and let you try it out yourself!

The cost is $35 and that includes all the materials for your sample pieces you'll create and keep. The sample pieces can be used as actual book covers.

This class was also taught at the Focus on Book Arts Conference in Forest Grove, Oregon this past June. You can see some photos from June's class by clicking here..
