Handmade Books - Book Art, Bindings, and Creative Forms

Instructor: Jennifer Mally

Date: April 7 - 10, 2022

Time: 10:00 am Thursday, April 7th - 1:00pm Sunday, April 10

Workshop Fee: $480

Fee includes: Lodging at the Art Ventures Retreat Center or the Prairie Center, all meals, instruction and all book making materials


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 and block printing.
