Description: The workshop will begin with an explanation of the importance of paper grain and weight. Participants will have time to practice with paper trimming by making simple bindings first. The class will progress onto actual instructions on three-hole pamphlet stitch, five-hole pamphlet stitch, self-hinged accordion book and Asian stab binding. Time permitting, more variations on pamphlet stitch and accordion binding will be covered.
No previous bookmaking experience is required. Photographers, printmakers, illustrators, graphic designers, writers and anyone interested in creating a hand-made book are encouraged to participate. Workshop participants may also bring their own book ideas and materials to the class.
