Bookbinding for Artists
Jean Potter

Mondays 7-9pm, October 25, Nov.1, Nov. 8, Nov. 15

Sliding scale $10-$20 per meeting ($40-$80 for four weeks)

This class is for artists from any discipline who have an idea of a book (or an edition of books) they’d like to make in this four week workshop. We will begin by sharing our ideas with the group, looking at several bookbinding structures, and deciding which structure best suits each artist’s concept.

Each artist/student will be responsible for purchasing his/her own materials, which will be determined once a book structure is chosen. The instructor will provide resources for inexpensive materials, including found/free stuff. Cost of materials will vary from person to person.

A lot of class time will be spent on instruction, brainstorming, troubleshooting, and discussion. Students will have the opportunity to use open studio space during business hours at the DryGoods Shop. For most book structures, time outside of class will be required to finish a book or set of books. Each week when we meet, we will look at progress on individual projects, answer questions, and have studio time.
