In this 2 session introductory class, we will explore the essential materials and equipment that help you make books that are attractive and well crafted. Paper grain, glue choices, papers and boards, and equipment will be investigated, and various techniques, including scoring, folding, and cutting. Students will learn craftsmanship techniques, tricks and habits which will set them on the road to becoming skilled bookbinders. We’ll cover book binding terms and resources as well as book arts communities and events. You will walk away with a basic skills toolkit for successful book making.

A materials fee of $10 will be due at registration.
