Basic Hand Bookbinding

with Paulette Rosen

This course will introduce basic book structures and techniques. Students will begin by making simple structures such as soft and hard cover pamphlets. They will progress to creating a “real book”, the more complex, traditional case binding, a hardcover book with lots of pages sewn together and a rounded spine. Some basic box making may also be taught. Intermediate binders may continue long term projects.

Note: Price in this class includes one 3-hour monitored open bench session a week.

Supplies: Tools and materials will be provided by CAW.

Wed, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM, 3/8 – 5/10
