ONSITE: Tiny Books, Big Charm

Small is beautiful! We’ll make handfuls of tiny books in three styles (accordion, dragon, and wrap-around cover), each under three inches square. Not only are tiny books adorable, working at this reduced scale allows us to work easily and quickly, and to think about how scale changes our experience. No prior bookbinding experience is required. This class is an ideal introduction to bookmaking for a newcomer and a fun exploration for an experienced bookbinder.

Special Notes

  • Students should bring cutting mat or other cutting surface, ruler & X-acto. All other materials including paper & bookmaking tools are provided by instructor with costs covered by materials fee.

    This class is not wheelchair accesible due to a set of stairs.
