Bookbinding Basics with Taylor Hanigosky, September 24-25

Bookbinding Basics with Taylor Hanigosky, September 24-25



In this workshop, students will learn how to create hard and softcover hand bound books. We will begin with a basic discussion of book construction, useful tools and paper choice. From there, students will learn the basic 3-hole stitch, Japanese stab binding, Coptic stitch and secret Belgian binding. These are book constructions I personally use regularly and that offer a variety of design scenarios to prepare students to create a book for whatever situation they can dream of. Students will make several books in the workshop and leave with knowledge and hands-on skills to make their own artist books and journals and to continue creative and more advanced book binding pursuits.

Students are encouraged to bring special papers or fabrics they would like to use in the book projects. Supplies are also provided.

SUPPLIES FEE: $15, cash or check payable to the instructor on the first day of the workshop.
