Build on your introduction to bookmaking skills! In this intermediate bookmaking class students will learn the process of binding a flat back, closed cover book. We’ll cover how to prepare and sew signatures over tapes, how to make a case with a hinged spine, and how to combine the two! In this class we will also get the chance to utilize some of the bindery’s equipment, such as the guillotine, board shears, and nipping press. All materials are provided with the materials fee, but students are more than welcome to bring their own decorative papers and book cloth to personalize their books. Everyone in this workshop will walk away with an entirely handmade, hardcover book.
Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Bookmaking (6 hours) or similar experience with bookbinding techniques required.
Registration closes September 9, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration covering all of the necessary materials for class.
