A309: Bookbinding 101 in Splash Spring 15 (Apr. 25, 2015)
Need a gift for Mother's Day? Annoyed that everyone in your high school has the same notebooks? This course offers an introduction to basic bookbinding skills - exactly what you need. Bookbinding is 2,000 year old art that was invented before paper even existed and continues to be practiced all over the world today. There are countless ways to bind books and in this class we'll teach one of them. You'll get to bind and take home your very own softcover case-bound book (kind of like a Moleskine). Hand bound books make awesome gifts, beautiful journals and excellent school notebooks (we know from experience). You can already read books, but after this class you'll be able to make them too!
