Bookmaking in the Classroom

Focus on: (Grades K - 12)

This workshop is an introduction to the principles, tools, and materials of bookbinding. Students will begin by making several types of decorative paper. You will then use this paper to construct a variety of books appropriate for classroom use. These include traditional bindings, accordion-fold books, Japanese side-sewn books, and a few whimsical, non-traditional books. Students will discuss the usefulness and age-appropriateness of different types of books, as well as how to overcome limitations such as materials and budget constraints. Learning how to integrate bookmaking projects into the classroom curriculum is a major focus of this course.
