Attendees can choose between leather and felt for their covers, as well as imported marbled or printed artist papers for their decorative end sheets. Materials are pre-cut and prepared for each attendee to assemble their book, with enough work left to impart important bookbinding skills. The class is taught in steps, with the teacher displaying and explaining the step for the class and answering questions, and then breaking out into "Do-It-Yourself (DIY)" times when the attendees perform the step on their own. During the DIY times, the teacher takes questions and helps anyone who needs individual help. Handouts explaining each step (with diagrams) are included for the attendees to reference throughout the program and take home. This program is taught by a professional book artist versed in both traditional and modern styles of bookbinding and book preservation. Students also benefit from the opportunity to work with handmade marbled and printed papers from around the world- in bright and fun colors, of course.
