What you'll do

Bring your own Harry Potter book to my shop and I will guide through the entire process of creating a custom made archival slipcase for your Potter book that will convert Harry Potter into an book that looks like it came just off a back shelf of the Hogwarts Library, and the slip case will preserve your book to hand down for many generations. You will learn how to measure your book, cut binder board and assemble the pieces, cover the book in special artistic papers that gives a centuries old look to you book. You will have the opportunity to add colors or pigments to your finished case that makes your case one of a kind. You will use hot stamping equipment provided by us and genuine gold leaf to make and apply titles on the spine. You will be able to take your project home with you at the end of the class. If a couple attends, each can do a different Harry Potter. If you don't have your Harry Potter book with you, don't worry, we have extra copies here that you can use for a template, make the slip case, and take it home and use it with your own Harry Potter copy. If you have a group of 4, 5, or 6, but do not see a time availability that works for you, email or call me, and with some advance notice I can usually accommodate your schedule, especially if it is a weekend workshop you desire. 267-983-8214.

Where you'll be

My shop is located in the 1241 Building, a converted warehouse for creative and artistic businesses. There are several artists including a print maker and a glass blower that offer immersive experiences. I'd be happy to provide information and links to them. My shop is a fully equipped bindery with most of the equipment being close to a hundred years old. You will work at the same benches and use the same tools as professional binders.
