Fall Workshops at Denver Bookbinding: Get Your Creative On With Two New Hands-On Classes

Denver Bookbinding is opening their workshop doors again to welcome makers in to learn new techniques and create together. If you have longed to be creative and be with your tribe, we have two workshops in September to choose from.

Make an Italian Leather Journal

Saturday, September 4, 1-4pm @ Denver Bookbinding Company, 1401 W 47th Ave, Denver, CO 80211

Are you a lover of things medieval? Was Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter your secret or not-so-secret pleasure? We are hosting our Italian Leather Journal Workshop just in time for you to make a gorgeous bound journal as a gift for yourself or someone special. Supple, velvety leather, quality papers and great instruction from our master bookbinder, Gail Lindley, combine for a singular bookmaking experience. Learn to make your own leather journal with a tie closure. The finished size is approx. 6in x 9in with 60 pages that are hand sewn into the spine of the cover with waxed linen thread. You’ll come away with a one-of-a-kind journal or sketchbook and all the skills to make more journals on your own. Cost for this in-depth workshop is $85.00 and includes all instruction, handouts, materials and supplies. Class size is limited to six students. Please come prepared with either your mask or your record of vaccines.

Photo Display Stand from Old Books: DIY Workshop

Saturday, September 11, 1-3pm @ Denver Bookbinding Company, 1401 W 47th Ave, Denver, CO 80211

We’re ready to get out amongst ’em and make stuff! If you are too, join us for this workshop taught by Gail Lindley and Chris Gyorgy. You’ll make a beautiful and functional photo display stand out of a recycled book — a chic way to keep some of your favorite photos out to be admired. All materials will be provided for you to make one display stand at the workshop and we’ll send you home with materials to make another as a gift for yourself or someone you love. It is time to gather and be creative at long last. Cost for the class will be $15 and covers all supplies and materials. Please come prepared with either your mask or your record of vaccines.

What Our Clients Say

I searched for a bookbinding company to make a book for my son, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan in the USMC. I had his letters and pictures of his platoons from his days at Parris Island through OCS, Ramadi and Helmand Province--and a Bronze Star (V). I am so fortunate we found Gail and Denver Bookbinding. Gail guided me through the process, selecting the cover material, the alignment and then produced 4 copies of the book at an incredibly fair price. My son, his sister and mother each received a copy--they are lifetime heirlooms. My son said: "Now my children will know what I did in the Corps and my relationship with my dad." We all thank Gail and her team.

In 2008 we ordered numerous family tree books to be bound....this company was wonderful to work with and our books were done at time they said they would be. Very impressed with their work!

Linda Lippert

Very friendly staff. This place has done an excellent job in preserving my professional journals for many years.

Richard Brundige

Great staff and an incredible product! We visited on pi day (March 14th) and as we walkef in the door were quickly offered wonderful choices of delicious pies. From there they passionately answered our questions and got us the materials we needed. Thanks Denver Book Binding!

Denver Bookbinding and the Second Story Event Space is a great place to hold an event at. I had my baby shower there and felt nothing but welcomed onto their property. There is plenty of parking and it is very open and spacious. I even had Denver Bookbindings employees help me with setting up the tables and chairs. I would highly reccomend this event center to all my friends and family.

Ann Lindley

Excellent work always listen to what I want and make better suggestion than what I was thinking. I have several more books to have binding down, will only deal with Denver bookbonders.

Wayne Pennington
Loved the spot, really nice atmosphere with comfy sofa chairs and a large bookcase full of books, they had a dog named Apollo that walked right up to me and everyone there was super nice.
