Turn the pages of history and learn to assemble your own hand-bound book at Pottsgrove Manor’s Bookbinding I Workshop on Saturday, September 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If you have ever wondered how books were made during the colonial era, discover how to make your own book at this hands-on workshop. Ramon Townsend, owner of The Colonial Bindery, will teach an introductory course on the tools, method, and skills needed to assemble an 18th-century style notebook by hand. Participants will be able to choose their pages, cover, and decorative marbled paper. Everyone will leave the workshop with their own one-of-a-kind book!
This is an introductory workshop and registration is required. The materials fee is $75 per person, and space is limited. Ages 14 and up are welcome. Participants are asked to bring a bagged lunch. Registration information can be found on the Pottsgrove Manor website, www.montcopa.org/pottsgrovemanor. Payment and registration are due by September 7.
Tours of the Potts family 1752 manor home will be open during normal museum hours. The Museum Shop will be open to purchase books, games, period reproduction items, and much more.
