Learn how to create your very own hardcover book! If you’ve ever fawned over old books in libraries and wanted to know how they are constructed, this class is for you! We will use traditional techniques to create our own cloth-bound, hardcover books in the “Western Case Binding” style. You’ll be involved in every stage of the creation, from folding and trimming the pages to sewing the book together to creating covers with bookcloth. There is a fair amount of measuring and “exactitude” in this style of bookmaking, so be prepared to move slowly and take care! Additionally, we will be using sharp blades to cut through some pretty thick boards, so come prepared for that. Pages will be blank inside, so you can use them as your own personal sketchbook, or they make great gifts.Maximum of 8 students. Four 3 hour sessions.
