There is something special about gathering loose pieces of paper into bound form, finishing them with a beautiful cover and holding the result in the hand that made it.
Do you have a pile of gelli plate prints you don’t know what to do with? Printed or painted art work on paper? Journal pages or personal writings? Collaged scrapbook pages? Travel ephemera? Beautiful marbled or antique papers? A collection of recycled papers or funky packaging that you would love to upcycle or repurpose? Or would you just like to make a blank book that you can fill later? This class is perfect for anyone interested in exploring bookbinding.
