ABOUT THE CLASS

The Art of Bookmaking will introduce students to basic concepts and techniques for making handmade books. We will learn about measuring, cutting, folding, and tearing paper, as well as dissecting holes to create folded and sewn bindings with both soft and hard covers. Students will have the opportunity to view and handle physical copies of handmade books to study the bindings and experience the physical qualities of the materials used in book arts.
During this summer camp, students will experiment with a variety of papers, materials, and the of use text and image in their handmade books. Students will explore making pamphlet, accordion, tunnel books, and more during the summer camp.
