Wouldn't it be fun to know how to make your own paper? Have you ever thought about hand binding your own journal or sketchbook? This multi-faceted class will jumpstart the printer, papermaker, and bookbinder within you! Students will make piles of handmade paper to dye, bind into books, and use for printmaking. By the end, each student will have made a half dozen or more book structures (traditional and sculptural).

The class will also experiment with several simple printmaking techniques (relief printing, stencil printing, and more) designed to quickly get text and images onto the pages. Students will leave class with a stack of handmade papers, several hard and soft covered books, and a portfolio of prints to keep or to share with friends. / No previous experience required. / Facilities fee of $35 and materials fee of $70 in addition to class tuition.
