Description
Books come in all shapes and sizes. Some may span only a few pages, while others become a thick tome. In this workshop we’ll explore the former as we create a multitude of models with both soft and hardcovers.

Students will begin this workshop by making a series of simple softcover pamphlets using a variety of sewing patterns before moving on to hardcover structures. All of these structures allow the book to lay flat and are perfect for chapbooks, presentation pamphlets or short stories.

This workshop will be live instruction through Zoom. Open to students at any skill level, but please contact me if you have questions determining if this workshop is right for you.
