The Sewn Board Binding is one of the most versatile structures in book arts, lending itself to everything from artist’s books to self-published chap books to blank journals. This class combines the fundamentals that inform sound construction with the satisfaction of finishing a fun, ready-to-enjoy book. Beginners will gain skills and better understand the nuances of good form, and experienced binders will discover unexpected opportunities for creative flair that can be exploited in future work. We’ll take some time to talk about how writers can prep their printed works to bind into self-published books.
6 students minimum to run workshop
