In this class students will learn the basics of bookbinding. This class is great for both those who wish to pursue binding their own books and for those who want to hire a bookbinder to bind a project for them. Weâ€™ll talk about paper grain, various adhesives, and different papers and their suitability for a range of projects. Students will complete at least 3 binding structures and will learn some variations on these structures. Examples of numerous binding structures will help inspire your own work.
