This in-depth class covers basis book forms and binding skills for experienced and beginning artists with a focus on book structures with exposed spines. A wide range of historical and contemporary models will be created in class with emphasis on design and material selection. You will learn to make books that do not need special equipment or materials. During the class, you will have time to work on individual projects, as well. No previous bookbinding experience necessary.
