Instructor: Nancy Callahan
Using a playful exploration of simple book forms you will be guided through the construction of a variety of unique folding patterns and binding techniques to produce numerous innovative book structures. Using a “nothing is wrong only different” approach participants will start with simple forms and build towards more complex structures.
Proper bookmaking skills will be covered while creating a number of unique books to take with you.
An ideal class for artists, scap-bookers, and teachers.
No previous bookmaking experience is required.
