This introductory course will familiarize students with the basic materials (paper, cloth, board, and adhesives), techniques (folding, sewing, gluing), and history of bookbinding. Students will make several structures, including a pamphlet, a flat and a rounded case bound multi-section book, and a photo album. Class tuition includes the cost of materials including paper, cloth, thread, glue and other materials.
This class is taught as a 30 hour evening class over ten sessions on Tuesdays in the evening from 6:30 to 9:30pm. It is a perfect introduction for the beginner interested in making books by hand. Upon registration, students will receive a supply list including hand tools they should bring with them to class the first night. Students will leave the workshop having learned several basic structures, and with information and ideas about how to continue making books in the future.
