This introductory class will teach basic bookbinding skills through simple bookbinding styles like chapbooks. Attendees will become familiar with bookbinding tools, develop hand techniques, and learn about basic book structures. This hands on workshop will cover the materials used in bookbinding, as well as best practices for folding and cutting paper, using bookbinding tools, and different types of sewing methods, in addition to learning how to bind simple books. This workshop is different from stand-alone offerings in that attendees will make their books from the beginning, with no materials being pre-cut or prepared in advance. 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.
