Beginner Book Structures
Sundays Jan. 6th & 20th 
3-5 PM 

Have you been wanting to bind your own books but don’t know where to start? Are you an aspiring zine maker? Maybe you want to tell a story or store your memorabilia meaningfully? Look no further! In this beginner class, you will learn how to make three fundamental book structures: one-page zines, the pamphlet stitch, and accordion books. These foundational structures can be applied to many projects and adapted into more advanced forms later in your book making journey. We will be using recycled and gleaned materials and welcome you to put your own creative spin on your practice books. You will leave with three of your very own handmade books and the knowledge to make more!
