Through unique folding and sewing techniques, we will construct a variety of book structures including pamphlet bindings with fold-out pages, contemporary versions of Japanese Albums, and bindings with exposed spine sewing. We will also make a portable sewing cradle for the on-the-go bookmaker. Whether you want to learn new book structures, or find unique ways to arrange imagery within your books, this workshop is for you. Beginners and those with prior book arts experience are welcome.
