Bookbinding Bonanza

Pamphlets, Accordions, and More

Are you a lover of books and want to learn how they are made? Interested in honing a new skill during your time sheltering at home? Join the Sacramento History Museum for the first of many workshops tied into our newest exhibit, California in Print! Bookbinding Bonanza: Pamphlets, Accordions, and More with Nikki Thompson from Deconstructed Artichoke Press will teach you all about one of the crafts behind producing printed media, binding books! This three part series includes hour-long virtual workshops on November 7, 14, and 21 at 10:00 am. These three online workshops allow you to try something new from the comfort of your own home, and are designed to be taken either individually or in series. Tickets are $30 for museum members and $35 for non-members. Bundle all three classes and save! When purchasing the bundle, all three classes are only $80 for museum members and only $95 for non-members. All supplies are included in the cost of your workshop, and supplies can be picked up from the museum prior to each session.
