Bookmaking ABCs

July 10, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Hands-on Artmaking Demo – Drop in any time!

What better way to celebrate the kick-off of BookFest than by creating a book from start to finish in this hands-on demo!? Participants will follow along step by step to create a blank book with a hand-printed cover, perfect as a sketchbook or journal.

Bookmaking ABC’s:
Step A: Handprint a book cover on our printing press from the 1930s
Step B: Fold & collate your printed cover & inside pages (blank or lined, you choose!)
Step C: Bind together with our antique binding machine

Suitable for curious folks of all ages & skill levels–families welcome.
Please read our ‘Plan your visit’ page to review our health & safety procedures.

Celebrate the Summer of BookFest! Get creative with Book Arts every Saturday starting July 10th for fun, free & family friendly artmaking activities happening right here at the Book Arts Center!
