What you'll learn in this bookbinding class:

Join Kelly Laughlin of Odette Press for an evening ofbookbinding, reflection, and meditation. How can gratitude writing shift our focus and bring more clarity and joy into our lives? In this class, we'll explore gratitude meditation, the how-to's of bookbinding, and the benefits of a daily writing practice -- three amazing tools we can use to stay grounded on the path of self-discovery. We'll start class with a guided visualization exercise, followed by instruction on how to create your own hand stitched journals, and a discussion on how to incorporate a daily gratitude writing practice into your life.

You'll walk away with two hand-bound gratitude notebooks, a toolkit for making journals outside of class, and the knowledge of how to embark on your daily gratitude journaling practice at home -- perfect for staying clear and grounded within the day to day of our busy lives.

Keep both journals, or keep one and give one away! Ticket price includes all materials needed to make two notebooks, along with a take-home tool kit for creating your own journals at home. This class is perfect for anyone who is interested in bookbinding, writing, meditation, or simply learning more about contemplative practices.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Thought it was fine, but not great. Instructor was nice, but not a teacher. Also, for the price of $75 it was not worth it.

It was a very organized, well-paced class and a great refresher for simple. Book making techniques. The teacher was knowledgeable and friendly and with most classes at Brooklyn Brainery the vibe is relaxed and quality is good. I also appreciated that we were sent home with the bookmaking supplies we used which makes it very easy to make again. The only thing that I wasn’t crazy about was the paper, though it was strong it was not aesthetically interesting which also made the finished product not look that good. Over all though very happy with the class.
