About the Event
We're so excited to offer this after-school series with local artist Summer J. Hart!
Over the course of two sessions, students will learn to hand bind a hardcover sketchbook using their own decorated paper for covers, just in time for recording summertime adventures.
Session 1: Inside
In this session we will decorate cover paper, sew signatures, and glue mull.
Session 2: Outside
In this session we will cover boards with decorative paper and book cloth, glue down end sheets, and press everything together.
Thursdays 3:30 to 5PM (2 sessions)
May 12 & 19
$50 / participant
(This workshop series is for kids ages 12+ and anyone who has completed Book Arts I.)
All materials are provided.
