About This Class

In this class learn how to create an editioned zine or artist's book from start to finish. We will work step by step from designing a book with content, reproducing the pages, and assembling the books using a pamphlet stitch, a basic form of a sewn binding. The final result will be multiples of your own book that are ready to go for your next craft fair or zine fest. No prior book binding experience is required in order to master these techniques, only your own two hands and some basic materials and tools.

This class is perfect for artists, writers, designers, or anyone who is interested in leaning basic book making techniques.
