2011 Maiwa Textile Symposium Workshop
Gaye Hansen
(Maiwa Loft - Net Loft Granville Is.)
$175 (Includes $50 Lab Fee)    Two full days - Class Limit 12

September 26 - 27 (Mon - Tue) 10am - 4pm

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.

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, 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.
