Bookbinding I
This introductory course will familiarize students with the basic materials (paper, cloth, board, and adhesives), techniques (folding, sewing, gluing), and history of bookbinding. Students will make several structures, including a pamphlet, a flat and a rounded case bound multi-section book, and a photo album. This course is a prerequisite for several other courses, and is a required course for our certificate program.
Deadline to register: One week before class starts.
