Hands-on classes in the Book Arts studio!
AD 365 Romans made books of parchment folded and sewn together and looked much like modern books… In this class you’ll learn a variety of traditional 3-hole single signature pamphlet binding, and some cool artsy variations, including the C-fold pamphlet, Z-fold pamphlet or do-si-do and the Gate fold pamphlet or French doors. Participants will leave class with a collection of handmade books.
