The Art of the Book begins with the book structure. In this workshop, learn two wonderful sewing techniques to get you started, which you will enjoy repeating from your home or studio:  the pamphlet style for folded pages is a perfect binding for poetry chapbooks, journals or drawing books; and the Japanese stab binding is ideal for assembling single sheets of artworks, photographs, and writings.  Get a glimpse into the world of making artist’s books and jump start a new way of thinking.
Workshop fee $80 (materials included) Space is limited, register now in advance!

DIY This Weekend: STRESS-FREE CLAMSHELL BOX Workshop

Saturday & Sunday, September 28 & 29,  9:30AM-3:30PM (All Levels)

Image

A complicated box structure, in this weekend we will break it all down as you learn to measure, cut, and glue with precision, constructing a sturdy 2-tray clamshell box. This beautiful structure is an art object in itself. You may use it to house a rare book, artist book, album, or portfolio of prints. Trays will be lined with decorative papers and the box will be covered in classic bookcloth. The size will be approximately 6″ x 8″.
