Recap—Workshop with Scout Books

Written by Chloe Miller

The team at Scout Books matches its building and studio’s aesthetic: bright, cheerful and welcoming. For our spring workshop, we had the pleasure of touring their facility and seeing how Scout Books (sometimes up to 3,000 per day!) are made.

Workshop participants contributed illustrations that were used to create a collaborative cover for the notebooks we took home. The theme was Portland summer, and unsurprisingly, there was an emphasis on bicycles, beer and camping.

Walker showed us how blank Scout Books can be customized with screenprinting or letterpress, and we had the opportunity to brand our own notebooks with the WeMake logo!

Many thanks to Laura, Austin and their team, to the Commons Brewery for hosting us beforehand and to Susie Morris for photographing the event. CHECK OUT MORE PHOTOS HERE!
