Bookmaking for Everyone (with Dave DiMarchi)
Fri Dec 1, 10-4pm
M: $85, NM $95, Materials: $45
Includes 6 hours of FREE studio time
In this bookbinding workshop artists will become familiar with the tools, materials and tricks of the book binding trade! Throughout this course, we’ll explore contemporary bookbinding, creating multiple book structures for highly personalized soft and hardcover artists’ books—ideal for journals, sketchbooks and artist books. Every artist will leave with beautiful handmade books, and all the knowledge needed to explore binding in their own work. Artists should anticipate supplying recycled prints, decorative and/or handmade papers, photographs, and printed ephemera to include in their bindings. Beginners welcome and encouraged! All materials and tools are included but artists are asked to bring any of the listed items and one yard of lightweight fabric.
