This introductory course will familiarize students with the basic materials (paper, cloth, board, and adhesives) and techniques (folding, sewing, gluing) used in making books. Students will make several different structures, including a pamphlet with complex variations, Japanese stab binding with variations, and a single needle coptic. Paper and tools will be provided, but students are welcome to bring papers and ephemera to use in their books.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. We have aprons, but please wear clothes suitable for artmaking.
