2017/18 Winter Classes

Coming soon – Altered Book Class

Introduction to Handmade Books

Saturdays, January 13 – February 3, 9:30am – 12:30pm (4 weeks)

This 4-week class is a great introduction to the fundamentals of handcrafted books. Participants learn how to fold, cut and sew paper using specialist bookbinding tools, and will create 10+ versatile book structures, including accordion, flag, squash, pamphlet, Japanese stab bindings, long stitch and other decorative stitched bindings.

Your books can be used to present work, to personalise and give as gifts, or as the basis for artists’ books. Students will leave with a set of their own books and the skills to make more at home.

Class runs from 9:30am -12:30pm on Saturday mornings. A small tool list will be sent out to participants before class begins. All materials provided.
