On each day of this workshop new book-making projects will be introduced. We will begin with alternative design books made by folding beautiful papers into accordions and expandible pages. We will move on to making more traditional book forms and binding them using the Coptic stitch, the Long stitch and the Japanese Stab stitch. Our last book will be made with a case binding - the common type of hardcover binding we see in the library. To enhance our books, we will play with marbling papers, rubbings, block printing and fabric covers. The workshop fee includes all meals, lodging in the Art Ventures Retreat Center, book making materials and handouts. Workshop fee includes lodging at the Art Ventures Retreat Center and all meals.
