Bookbinding Basics with Taylor Hanigosky
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
In this workshop, students will learn how to create hard and softcover hand bound books. You will begin with a basic discussion of book construction, useful tools and paper choice. From there, students will learn the basic 3-hole stitch, Japanese stab binding, Coptic stitch and secret Belgian binding. These are book constructions I personally use regularly and that offer a variety of design scenarios to prepare students to create a book for whatever situation they can dream of. Students will make several books in the workshop and leave with knowledge and hands-on skills to make their own artist books and journals and to continue creative and more advanced book binding pursuits.
