In this book-making workshop artists will become familiar with the tools, materials and tricks of the book binding trade! Throughout this course, we’ll explore contemporary bookbinding, creating multiple book structures for highly personalized soft and hardcover books—ideal for journals, sketchbooks and artist books. Every artist will leave with beautiful handmade books, and all the knowledge needed to explore binding in their own work. All book-making materials and tools are included, but artists should anticipate supplying recycled prints, decorative and/or handmade papers, photographs, and printed ephemera to include in their bindings. Beginners welcome and encouraged!
