This course is the fundamentals of bookbinding. Participants will first spend a morning creating their own paste papers for use as they progress through a series of increasingly involved book forms. Starting with single section pamphlets, then 2 and 3 section bindings, students will have learned the techniques and the many potentials of each structure for shaping and containing their creative ideas. Whether the focus is on journals, sketchbooks or unique and beautiful notebooks for impressing friends, working in this ancient and very contemporary craft will be a deeply satisfying experience.
