Current / Upcoming Courses

28. Miniature Bookbinding

During this workshop, we will use traditional bookbinding techniques to make miniature books. By definition, miniature books are less than 3" in any dimension. For this workshop, printed texts will be provided so the finished books will contain short texts, short stories, poems, etc. Students can choose to make blank books if they prefer. We will make three different books, in three sizes, using three different binding techniques.

27. Bookbinding Weekend

Learn traditional bookbinding techniques and create a beautiful hand bound, hardcover journal. Students will each create a classic hardcover book using hand binding techniques, marbled papers,
and beautiful book cloths.
