Bookbinding: Build Your Own Journal
Building a book is like building a a timber frame - the parts are smaller and they do bend easier, but they must all fit together for it to work! In this introductory bookbinding class, students will bind a 7 x 10 hard-cover, multi-section book, perfect for recording details of craft projects or for any other journaling use. Bring something to design your cover around - a small carving, a stone, some fabric or paper so that your book a will have a personal story right from the start. Depending on its size, the piece might be in an inset window, an inset strip or "puzzle" piece, or as a cover for the front or even the whole book. The instructor will provide all other materials. Craft a journal that is uniquely yours.
