Bookbinding for Teachers: Weekend Intensive
July 8 - July 9
July 8 and 9, Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm
Bookbinding for Teachers: Weekend Intensive, covering Part I: Basics and Part II: Exploration
This weekend intensive is designed for teachers of 7 – 12 year olds, with methods and techniques that may be modified to accommodate other age groups. We will spend Saturday creating classroom-tested and kid-approved book structures that are quick, simple and mess-free. You will leave with a variety of book structures and ideas for including book arts in your classroom.
On Sunday, we will build on the methods learned on Saturday by creating pamphlet and accordion structures with greater complexity, as well as combination bindings. We will also make origami-folded books and explore basic pop-up techniques. You will leave with a variety of book structures and ideas for including book arts in your classroom. No previous art or bookbinding experience necessary.
