Tiny Books: Outdoor Bookbinding Workshop!
DATE: July 22, 2021
TIME: 5:30 - 8:30pm
Join the tiny movement and make a set of 3 tiny books as templates for bigger projects. This is a quick and fun introduction to bookbinding in miniature format. Students can use decorative paper and colorful thread to personalize their tiny books. No prior experience necessary.
In this class, students will learn three types of bookbinding using glue and non-glue methods. Students will have samples of 3 tiny books; the accordion, pamphlet and Japanese stab binding. These can be utilized to make a bigger format book for a photo album, journal or artist book.
Students are welcome to bring their own decorative papers or items for collage. We encourage you to come to class with your own bone folder and awl, but we will have a few available to lend.
