If you have every been even a little curious about books arts. . . this class is for you! We will explore this unique medium using various techniques which you can expand upon to make more complicated constructions based on these simple original forms. Each day we will look into a specific structure, creating models for reference, which could include: simple section pamphlet stitched books, whirlwind books, accordion books, flag books, scroll books, palm leaf books, tunnel books, etc. While making these samples we will discuss the use of various materials, different types of glues, and the basic rules of book building. In the second half of the course we will build a portfolio using book board, decorative paper and book cloth that can contain photos and drawings of your work. Finally, Mita will consult with you to help guide you on any projects of your own using the structures learned. When you finish this class you will have an extensive working knowledge of the materials, tools and the many types of artist book structures to incorporate into your own future projects. A materials fee of $30 should be paid directly to the instructor at the first class meeting.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
