In this 2-hour class, you'll learn the basic tools, terms, history, and experience of book arts. You'll hand bind 2 or 3 different kinds of books, and explore Japanese stab binding, the accordion fold book, and more! We'll discuss and experiment with everything from cover design to using unique materials to the contents of your books (poetry, photos, drawings, etc). You will leave with at least 2 finished books and the knowledge of how to make books at home. Space is limited, register today: 720-865-0000.If you can't make it this weekend, you'll have another chance: Saturday, August 20 at 10:00 a.m. at the Bear Valley Branch.
