This class is a good foundation and a wonderful introduction to the world of handmade books. Students will encounter a wide breadth of bookbinding techniques not found in our other class, The Art of Bookbinding.

Bookbinding Basics is a must for anyone interested in keeping a paper record or a bound journal. A wide variety of materials will be incorporated into the book projects: decorative papers, mounting film, book cloth, fabrics, book boards, text pages, linen threads, and more.

This two-day class introduces the participants to basic bookbinding terms and techniques. The class includes corner treatments and the use of book cloth and end papers. Participants will also learn how to create and sew signatures in different ways. Students will learn about accordion books, simple journals, and the open-spine book.

Enter a new paper-bound world of creativity.
