This workshop is part of Developing the Artist's Book: Techniques and Procedures, a series of workshops at Lynden throughout the spring of 2017. For more information, click here.

In this workshop, you will learn to create a book the old-fashioned way, by folding paper into signatures, sewing those signatures on a sewing frame, and making a case. You'll even get to try your hand at gold tooling. You will go home with your own handmade blank book, bound in cloth and marbled paper. All materials, including paper, book cloth, hand-marbled paper, sewing supplies and adhesive, are included. Participants will receive a course book with pictures and a step-by-step description. Binding frames will also be available for purchase, if desired.
