About the Workshop:

In this beginning hardcover bookbinding class, you will learn to make several different hardcover bindings. Students will gain a foundational understanding of hardcover bookbinding including how the structure beneath the cover can affect the final result. Students will develop the skills needed to create a variety of hardcover books that will prepare them for building more complex hardcover designs such as the inboard cloth-bound book. In the process, students will learn about the historical and contemporary uses of the structures learned in the book arts and artists books.

All other materials will be provided by Center for Book Arts at no additional cost.
