Hand bookbinding

July 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

This program deals with Hand Bookbinding. Students will produce at least one finished books during the class. We will learn how to fold signatures, use an awl to punch holes and stitch together our pages. Students will choose paper for the end pages and glue them onto the front and back of the signatures. After gluing the binding we will cut the page edges cleanly. Paper backed cloth will be glued onto cardboard for the covers; the signatures will be correctly placed inside and glued in. Voila! Your own book!

All experience levels are welcome in this lively and productive workshop. Students may bring a front and cover sheet of their own: drawing or computer print: 6” x 8” max will work.

This event is for Youth.

Please call the Library to register.
